The MECCA Graduate Program

MECCA Brands

At MECCA Brands, we’re going places.  Is your future with us?

The MECCA Brands Graduate Program is an accelerated, all-access, 2-year journey through our fast-growing business and it’s one of the paths through which we grow our future leaders. From February to late March each year, we open applications for highly driven, curious and innovative Graduates who aren’t afraid to dream big and challenge the rules. Whatever your academic background, you will find opportunities within our Graduate program to drive change, innovate and go places!

The highlights

Our Graduate program is a 2-year accelerated journey through our business, based out of our Support Centre in Melbourne. Through bespoke 6-month rotations in up to 4 different departments, you will be exposed to a curated mix of creative and business-oriented projects. You will also receive support, training and mentoring from a range of inspirational leaders at MECCA, including your coach and line manager in each rotation. At the conclusion of the program, you will be primed to stay on and hopefully become our future MECCA leaders and game changers.

Rotations in creative and business-oriented departments

While your friends in other Graduate programs may be sitting in a stuffy corporate office doing repetitive work, at MECCA Brands you’ll be going places!  You could be… 

  • Designing our next generation of stores
  • Developing new products
  • Working on new brand launches
  • Creating our next digital campaign
  • Developing our next modules of leadership training
  • Solving an inventory problem across a network of 100 stores 
  • Integrating and implementing new software throughout the Support Centre, Distribution Centre or Stores
  • Preparing a business case for a major investment
  • Conceiving our next eCommerce feature

First class training and development, in an environment where boldness and innovation are valued

The first week of our Graduate program is dedicated to formal learning and development, to equip you with the skills to excel at MECCA Brands right from the start.  We also provide you with a wide range of continual support and training throughout the program, including:

  • pairing you with a coach and buddy to mentor, guide and support you;
  • workshops between rotations, with cross-functional Graduate team projects;
  • regular presentations by inspiring internal and external speakers from all around the world;
  • leadership training;
  • brand training;
  • core skills presentations.

All this in a non-conformist and evolving environment where ideas and innovation are valued from all team members.
