Graduate Program

Graduate Program = Real Jobs + Real Accountability

At DuluxGroup we hire graduates into real roles with real accountability. We hire new graduates as opporutnities emerge, rather than a specific intake.

To support recent graduates we have a dedicated Graduate Development Program which offers university graduates work in real jobs, with real experiences and exposes them to many opportunities within its three years.

Graduates join us to work in a variety of roles, including graduate chemists, marketing product managers, site engineers and business analysts. They often move between business units such as Selleys, Yates, Dulux NZ and Dulux Paints Australia. They could be wokring at our new state-of-the-art paint factory at Merrifield, in the Innovation Centre labs devising new formulas for products, or on our iconic marketing campaigns. Our graduates are in high demand from managers across the company as they have both academic and real, on the job, experience.

The Graduate Development Program delivers much more than technical skills and knowledge; we are developing our graduates to be leaders of the future. During the three-year development program, they develop skills and experience in finance, project management, presentation techniques, effective communication and undertake a variety of business simulations. Our graduates do field work, spend time in various parts of the business and develop a holistic view of DuluxGroup. Our Executive team and other senior leaders actively sponsor and mentor graduates.
