Graduate Development Program overview

The APA Graduate Development Program is a two-year learning journey designed to develop our future leaders and technical specialists. As a Graduate, you will gain valuable industry experience and learn about our business. You will complete three structured rotations in line with your discipline and interests. Working collaboratively across teams is important at APA and you will have the opportunity to work on a range of challenging projects across our business. Alongside gaining valuable on-the-job experience is the chance to build networks that will last a lifetime.

Your graduate development program will be the start of your career at APA and we know growth and progression are important to you. During your two years, there will be opportunities to receive feedback on your performance and set goals for your future career.

To help you on your learning journey, you will participate in a customised development program focusing on skills such as resilience, managing change, personal brand, communication, teamwork and networking.
