Our Graduate Program

Yarra Valley Water

As a graduate, you’ll experience a broad range of diverse and challenging experiences. With a rotation every 12 months, we will actively support your development and growth.

You’ll work closely with other graduates and our Executive Team to improve customer, community and business outcomes. We expect you to drive projects, rather than being a cog in the wheel.

Adjusting to corporate life comes with its challenges, so every graduate has a mentor, a buddy, and the full support of our Graduate Coordinator and leadership team to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.

Learning opportunities are everywhere – in classroom sessions, self-directed and on the job. And because everyone’s different, we’ll work with you to develop a tailored development plan to make sure you’ve got everything you need.
