APP currently has nine graduates taking part in the highly-sought-after program nationally. Due to the nature of our work, which revolves around projects, embedded within our Graduate Program is the ability to experience the full spectrum of APP and the diversity of our projects. It is a 12-month program that generally runs to the calendar year however there is flexibility depending on projects and individual commitments. A great example is in our Melbourne branch where two of our current graduates are finishing their program and one is just beginning.
Several members of the team joined APP through the Graduate Program. Senior Project Manager, Rebecca Cobb-Clark began her career in Sydney before relocating to Melbourne. “Through the Graduate Program, I had the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects with different teams including property, urban development and projects. This was an invaluable opportunity to gain insight into a number of areas of the construction industry in a very short period of time. The Graduate Program helped me define the direction I wanted to take with my career and I have continued to build on this experience over the last seven years with APP,” Rebecca said.
APP’s Graduate Program places great importance on ensuring graduates are placed on live projects where they are given real work and real responsibility. They are fully supported with continual training that is both formal and practical. The learning opportunities for our graduates is substantial and varied depending on their individual desire to learn. In addition the teams they work amongst are actively invested in helping them to succeed, which is a cultural trait of APP.
In providing this level of training, support and experience, Graduates have proven to be better able to identify and articulate their passion and future career path and we’re fully invested in helping each Graduate achieve their career goals.
There are so many of us who are invested in the success of the Graduate Program each year and we’re delighted to have been recognised. Congratulations to APP’s HR team, the team at Appoint Consulting and all of the project teams who continue to take Graduates under their wing on this wonderful achievement.
