Set up for success
You’ll spend your first week as a graduate at Coles getting to know our business. Our Graduate Program Induction includes intensive professional learning and development sessions ranging from understanding self and business communication fundamentals to internal consulting, business partnering and project management.
For our SSC Graduates, you’ll also spend some time getting to know our customers in store, because no matter which team you’ll be working with, it’s critical in setting you up for success.
For our Operations Graduates, our induction will also allow you to network with people within the Store Support Centre, people from a range of different functions who will support you throughout your program.
Across both years of the program, you’ll spend most of your time working on real deliverables with clear ownership and accountability.
As a SSC Graduate, your program involves working on projects in cross-functional teams and in year two, presenting a business case to our Board of Directors on a real business challenge. But there’s no better way to understand what our graduates do while in rotation than hearing from them yourself, so ensure you head to our website to see what they’ve got to share about their experiences
