This program is like no other and will kick-start your journey to fast track your career where the sky is the limit.

Our Graduates are resilient, innovative, self-starters who can adapt, grow and positively contribute to our business. From day one you will have real responsibility and the opportunity to have a genuine impact to your designated business division.

  • 4x ‘Sector’ rotations where you will immerse yourself into an area of the business for 6 months at a time over the 24 months of the program
  • 3x ‘Short haul’ routes, these are short immersions in chosen areas of the Virgin Australia Group that are designed to provide you a holistic overview of the entire operation and deepen your knowledge and understanding of our business
  • 2x Stretch ‘long haul’ assignments where you will participate in real business projects that help provide experiential learning and contribute in a way that makes a visible change to our business.
  • Leader led masterclasses that have been designed to impart knowledge and learning from our high performing leaders that will help you build your ‘toolbox of skills’ and accelerate your development and career
  • Group presentation to our Executive Team, this is an amazing unique opportunity for you to present to the top team! Share your insights, learnings and recommendations on continuous improvement opportunities that you have gathered through your experiences in the program.
