Reece Group - Much more than plumbing

Reece is an Australian icon – we’ve been around for over 100 years. We’re a big business that works hard to retain the little things that made us great when we were small - staying agile and innovative – which has been one of the key drivers of our success.

We are Australia's largest supplier of plumbing and bathroom products; a major public company with over 8,000 people, 800 locations and 10 business lines across Australia, New Zealand and North America. As an essential service, our business has never been more important to community health and hygiene.

We thrive on new ideas and are on the hunt for Graduates with the energy and passion to make things happen. We are specialists beyond just taps, toilets and pipes – we’re creators of customer experiences and customer value across all areas of Bathroom & Plumbing.

And that’s where you come in.

About the opportunity

At Trout, we have a rare and exciting opportunity for a graduate in our Strategy & Insights team, supporting the teams by providing customer and market research & insights reports to prepare for Reece and non-Reece client marketing briefings.

The Graduate Program, in partnership with the Reece Group, will host you through an immersive learning experience over 18 months, split over 2 major periods:

  • 6-month Learning Journey working from within one of our retail-based branches where you will undertake a month-by-month learning plan, and learn deeply our customers & products first-hand from the frontline. This 6-month experience will broaden your understanding of the Reece Group businesses, deepen your knowledge of our customer, and build your preparedness to craft your career at Trout.
  • 12 months of supported learning and development within the Trout Strategy & Insights team, under the guidance of a personalised mentor. Over this time, you’ll work for Reece and non-Reece clients on producing pre-campaign market & customer insight reports to support Brand & Communications Strategists with their client briefs.

This Graduate opportunity will commence in July 2022.

Key Selection Criteria

We’re seeking recent university graduates from a range of disciplines and backgrounds from Marketing through Psychology – or any discipline with a focus on customer behavior, behavioral economics, or similar.
