Graduate Training Program


The AWI Graduate Training Program is designed for graduates from a broad cross section of disciplines who have a background in, or connection with, the Australian wool industry.

The 18-month program starts each year in March and provides the successful applicant/s with a thorough understanding of the wool supply chain from fibre to fashion. The program is designed to foster the ambitions of graduates wishing to pursue a career within the wool industry. Each graduate receives a mentor appropriate to their skill set and interests to guide their development throughout the program.

Based primarily at the AWI office in Sydney, the graduates will gain exposure to many areas of the AWI business including On-Farm Research, Processing Innovation and Education Extension, Consultation and Engagement, Global Marketing, Digital, Measurement and Evaluation, and Business Services. Graduates are also given the opportunity to gain global exposure to the wool supply chain through two international rotations. The program also provides the graduates with ongoing professional training and development opportunities, to further enhance their career within the industry.

AWI wants to use this program to not only build a talent pipeline for the business but also source and develop graduates who have a real passion for the industry.
