Ausgrid Graduate Corine Being someone who is passionate about people, I was thrilled to see just how people-centric Ausgrid is as I made my way through the recruitment and onboarding process. Everyone I met across the various teams had a smile on their face and displayed a genuine excitement for what they do and how it contributes to powering our community now and in the future.

 Starting my first rotation in the People Services team, you can see the depth of care that’s taken to help all employees within their roles. With just over 3000 people across the organisation, Ausgrid ensures everyone is recognised for their service and prioritises employee health and well-being through various programs, as well as maintaining a safe and collaborative work-environment.

The breadth of knowledge and experience you come across at Ausgrid combined with the exciting and innovative opportunities facing the energy space at this time, makes this a rare and fantastic opportunity to be a driver of change! If you’re looking to kick-start your career, I highly recommend the Ausgrid Graduate Program.

Graduate JooEan PrasadI kick-started my career as an Ausgrid Graduate in 2009. The program provided me a breadth of experience spanning the different business units within the company which aided in building my career as a Systems Operations Manager.

I am forever grateful for the lifelong friendships formed during the program and opportunities given to me.
