"From day one on the Graduate Program I was given a lot of responsibility. I’ve been exposed to everything from funds management and capital raising to deal execution (such as acquiring avocado farms). I studied a Bachelor of Commerce (majoring in Finance) and a Bachelor of Laws, and was placed in the agriculture team within Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets, a division of Macquarie Asset Management."

“What I do depends on the project my team is working on, which means that my days are quite diverse. For example, one day I might be building an acquisition model and the next I might be analysing due diligence reports. I am also involved with investor engagement which entails commercial and legal diligence as part of the journey to bring investors into a fund.

“During the Graduate Program, I was the lead analyst for avocado farm asset acquisitions. That was exciting and a great learning opportunity to see a deal through from start to end. As part of the asset diligence process, I got to visit a couple of avocado farms – and take a few avocados home! My role in this project helped build up some of the core skills an analyst needs: preparing presentations, financial modelling and the ability to engage with stakeholders.

“I really enjoy the team I work in. It has a flat structure and I’m surrounded by people who constantly support and motivate me, challenge my ideas and encourage me to think laterally.

“The Graduate Program has also exposed me to activities outside of my immediate team. Through the Graduate Volunteer Network, I did some volunteer work with Youth Off The Streets, preparing and cooking donated food, and then distributing it to people in need. It was a fantastic opportunity to give back to the community, and an experience that I really enjoyed.”

“After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (First Class Honours) from the University of Western Australia, I moved to Sydney to join Macquarie. Initially, I worked across a range of transactions and products from structured finance to green infrastructure."

 

"After six months of rotations and varied work, I joined a team that invests in specialist disability accommodation (SDA), an initiative by the Australian Government, that provides a Government-backed rental stream to people with very high support needs or extreme functional impairment for housing through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The nature of this work has been immensely rewarding, as our developments provide high quality housing to a cohort of disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

“Over my Graduate year in Macquarie Asset Management, I have had multiple opportunities to create and foster relationships externally, with exposure to potential and existing clients, and internally throughout Macquarie with continuous engagement with key functions such as the Financial Management Group and the Risk Management Group. The ability to work with a wide range of people has allowed me to become far more knowledgeable and involved in my current sector, and to better understand the other groups in Macquarie that we work with every day. From the start of my career, Macquarie has offered multiple opportunities for ownership of work and development of new ideas through rotations across diverse and high performing teams and a number of professional and personal development training courses.    

“Macquarie offers lots of great networking events and additional training so that Graduates throughout Macquarie can meet and attend events together. MIRA, in particular, emphasises a great work culture with a variety of sporting teams, groups and social activities which has been particularly helpful since my move from Perth to Sydney.”
