Schneider Electric Energy Generation Graduate Program 2012
Schneider Electric is searching for the best of the best engineering graduates in Australia for its ‘2012 Energy Generation’ graduate program.
The Schneider Electric “Energy Generation” Graduate Program is a two year program that provides opportunities for young engineering and commerce professionals to explore a broad range of roles and businesses within Schneider Electric, from both a technical and a leadership perspective. Graduates are given the opportunity to contribute to Schneider Electric’s success and simultaneously gain experience and reinforce their knowledge.
The Energy Generation Graduate Program has two streams, and interacts with Schneider Electric employees across Australia and in other countries to help graduates build important collaboration skills and gain an understanding of both the industry and the Schneider Electric organisation worldwide.
The two Energy Generation streams include:
“It's not only about how smart or tech savvy the graduates are, we are also looking to identify those with future leadership potential and demonstrate a passion to help us solving the world’s energy dilemma,” Natasha Gray, Schneider Electric Human Resources Business Leader said.
“From the CEO downwards, we’re also committed to broadening opportunities for women as we recognise that gender balance is important to leveraging complementary characteristics of both men and women in the workplace,” Ms Gray continued.
Working at Schneider Electric gives graduates opportunities that know no borders. The international Marco Polo program (which graduates are eligible for after completion of the Energy Generation program), offers young high potential employees the chance to take work assignments outside of Australia either upon initial employment with Schneider Electric or at a future date.
David Gooding, a project engineer, started with the organisation as a graduate in 2007.
“I have had great opportunities to travel to different parts of world within the company. During my time as a grad, I attended a leadership forum for two and a half weeks in Poland. There were 50 engineers flown in by the company from around the world - it was a fantastic experience and something that I never could have dreamed would happen,” David said.
Schneider Electric invests in its graduates through ongoing learning, including training and development through e-learning, in-house training, and the Schneider Electric University, a free, online portal to learn about the latest energy efficient solutions and energy management practices to help save money, reduce emissions and increase business efficiency.
