Graduate Development Program
The Graduate Development Program is designed with our graduates. During the first session, we provide you with the opportunity to contribute your ideas and learning priorities for what you would like to cover during the 12-month program and to explore how you would most effectively like to learn.
In the past, our graduates have wanted to focus on skill development such as personal presence and impact, how to communicate effectively and building a positive representation of themselves. They also wanted to learn from the experience of others within the business, their career journeys, their challenges and their advice for success. The program was developed around these priorities with a range of internal and external speakers.
In addition to the Graduate Development Program, you’ll be invited to complete a number of orientation initiatives designed to help you get your bearings around your office and learn about how to make your mark at Macquarie.
The initiatives will be a mixture of online learning and face-to-face events. You’ll attend ‘Discover Macquarie’, where you’ll meet some of your new colleagues and develop your understanding of Macquarie's structure and operating groups.
After six months, you’ll attend ‘Success at Macquarie’, where you’ll hear insights from our business leaders and learn about how to make the most of your career at Macquarie.
Once you finish the Graduate Program, there are a range of learning and development opportunities available to you. From team development and manager capability to individual skills development, our learning and development teams design programs to help you develop your knowledge and skills.
At Macquarie, you’ll be encouraged to own your career. This means that it’s up to you to choose which direction you want to take – whether that’s taking on a new project; progressing within your division; exploring an opportunity in a different team; or relocating globally – and our learning and development programs can be tailored to help you get there.
