You’ll work with a collaborative team, learn from experts, and grow your career with our diverse range of businesses and brands.

We encourage our people to give back to the communities in which we live and work, with our paid Community Action Day and other programs. An commitment to safety and sustainability also drives us to deliver on our vision of "A Future Without Harm.”

Our Values & Behaviours
Dulux Group genuinely live and breathe our values; they underpin our high-performance culture and drive the delivery of our core purpose.

  • Be consumer driven, customer focused
  • Unleash your imagination
  • Value people, work safely and respect the environment
  • Run the business as your own

We recruit for positions right across Australia and New Zealand.

If you apply for a role in a different location, you will be responsible for your relocation expenses.

Our recruitment process is designed to give you the best opportunity to showcase your talent, in a streamlined approach. Initial applications open in July and we aim to get back to you within 2 weeks of your application being submitted

We run a best-practice recruitment process specifically designed for early careers recruitment.


This involves submitting an eligibility form, if eligible you will be asked to complete our motivation application form, online testing and video interview followed by a virtual engagement centre (to find out more about us) and then an in person interview and case study.


At this Engagement Centre, you will hear from graduates and senior leaders within your chosen stream about what it’s like to work at Dulux Group. You’ll then be invited to an inperson interview where you’ll also complete a case study exercise. At both the engagement centre and interview you’ll also have the opportunity to get all your questions answered and find out more about us.


If you’ve never completed online testing or a video interview before, these tasks might sound daunting – but let us reassure you there’s nothing to worry about!


Our best advice is to:

  1. Prepare like you would for a normal interview (e.g. think about your relevant skills and some experiences that highlight these)
  2. Try to minimise distractions and complete the tasks at a time and place that you can focus
  3. Take some deep breaths and just be yourself!

We’re committed to giving our applicants the chance to pursue roles on a level playing field, by removing barriers that people with a disability may face. If you think there are any reasonable adjustments we can make to the recruitment process (or the role), so you can participate fairly.

Please email us at org.development@duluxgroup.com.au We want you to feel comfortable to be yourself.

As a commitment to every person who applies for a role with us, you will receive a written or verbal notification on the outcome of your application. If you haven’t heard from us yet, that means we are still considered your application.

Great news! If you’ve been offered a place on our 2024 Graduate Program, you will also be offered casual employment prior to the program starting in February 2024
