NEC opens the 2018 graduate intake for Australia’s next technology leaders

NEC Australia, a leading Australian IT solutions and services firm, has opened the 2018 NEC Australia Graduate Program, a launchpad for Australia’s next technology leaders.

Australia’s top training ground for tomorrow’s CIOs, CISOs, and leaders of technology operations is open from today, giving graduates access to leading experts who are shaping the future of Australian enterprise technology in government, industry and commerce.

NEC’s national Graduate Program, in its 2nd year, has become one of Australia’s top incubators for future technology leaders. This year’s program offers graduates direct access to exciting areas of technology spanning facial recognition, artificial intelligence, and mobile technologies that have been deployed to solve large-scale business and community challenges, from Perth's drought-prone water supplies to emergency services in Victoria.

“The program is a fantastic training ground for graduates to grow and learn the NEC way of engaging with the community and using technology to solve not just business challenges, but using it to improve public safety and security in the physical and digital realms," said Sue Roberts, Director of People & Culture at NEC Australia.

"This program is about finding NEC Australia’s future leaders, and we also aim to develop local skills that are in high-demand across the industry, such as in cyber security, AI, systems development, networking, biometrics, and wireless technologies. NEC Australia is a world leader in many of these technologies and they're also crucial to Australia’s future.”

Applications for the NEC Graduate Program 2018 is open until Sunday 1 April, 2018. Successful graduates will commence the mid-year intake on 30 July 2018 with opportunities available in four of Australia’s major cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Darwin.

NEC strongly encourages applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and candidates from culturally diverse backgrounds.

The graduate program is open to graduates who have completed degrees in Computer Science, Information Technology, Networking, Software Engineering or another technology related discipline within the last two years.

Applicants who succeed have the opportunity to develop and customise NEC’s cutting-edge innovations in cyber security, biometrics, and artificial intelligence (AI) to solve complex business challenges faced by Australian enterprise organisations.

The graduate program also incorporates on-the-job experience, coaching, workshops, performance planning and feedback under NEC Australia’s “70:20:10” approach, a framework that supports learning across three dimensions, including the experience, social and formal aspects of business.

“If you’re a motivated graduate who loves innovation and solving complex challenges, we encourage you to apply,” said Sue Roberts.
