Recognising top Australian Employers, University Students and Universities

Each year, GradConnection partners with Chandler Macleod and The Australian Financial Review to deliver the Top100 Graduate Employers and Future Leaders Competition and Awards Night. Since 2014, the event has been bringing together all parts of the graduate recruitment industry, including employers, graduates and universities for one of the biggest nights of the year.


For employers

All employers listed on the GradConnection website are in the running for the Top100 Graduate Employer Awards. The Awards are split into industry categories as well as graduate and internship employers.
