At a time when job readiness and skills gaps are key concerns for corporate Australia Clemenger Group has announced the continuation of its highly successful and unique Consulting Graduate Program for 2024 with applications now open.
Applications for the Clemenger Graduate Program are now open for positions in Sydney and Melbourne. Applications close at 11:59pm AEST on Friday 1 September 2023.
Reinforcing its steadfast commitment to offering opportunities to the next generation of curious thinkers, Clemenger Group consultancies Porter Novelli, GRACosway, Hall & Partners, Quantum Market Research and LEVO will offer seven roles to graduates across Sydney and Melbourne next year.
The Clemenger Consulting Graduate Program has a long history in delivering graduates of any discipline with the opportunity to build their skills in communications, public affairs, market research and strategic design and technology, in a single calendar year.
Rotating across multiple operating companies, graduates will gain first-hand experience working with a range of clients and industries, while learning from leaders across various sectors – an experience unlike any other.
Commenting on the long-term success of the program, Clemenger Group chief people officer, Raj Tapper (pictured above) said it has never been more important for businesses to invest in entry-level opportunities that create long-lasting impact for young professionals: “The Clemenger Consulting Graduate Program is one of many essential components of how we successfully invest in people, both personally and professionally. At a time where opportunities for young people are scarce, we remain focused on giving them a unique platform to kick start a prosperous and fulfilling career.
“As a Group, we have also invested in initiatives that support young people in alignment with our commitment to driving diversity, equity and inclusion. Last year we launched Clemenger Group’s first-ever creative consulting internship program, CUBED in partnership with RMIT University.
“More recently, LEVO announced its inaugural LEVO Indigenous Technology Scholarship with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), offering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students the opportunity to pursue a career in technology.”
“Another huge success has been CHEP Network’s involvement in the Work Integrated Learning program at UNSW to strengthen students’ readiness skills for the workplace, which has resulted in full time employment for an intern in the agency’s Data team.”
Current graduate Neena Karunakar said the Clemenger Consulting Graduate Program has exposed her to a range of different client work that delivered invaluable experience and the skills required to fast-track her career: “It is rare to find a graduate program that gives you solid hands-on exposure to multiple clients and industries from day one. The Clemenger Consulting Graduate Program has so far delivered several interesting challenges for me to grow personally and professionally while receiving constant support and guidance from the industry’s most successful leaders.
“For any recent or upcoming graduates searching for a unique way to gain invaluable experience and propel their career in communications, public affairs, market research and strategic design and technology forward, I would encourage them to apply.”
