Graduate Training Program

AWI wants ewe

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 and 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 graduate/s will also be given the opportunity to gain a global exposure to the wool supply chain through two three-month international rotations.

Whilst in Sydney, the graduate will gain exposure to the following areas of the business:

  • Sheep Production
  • Woolgrower Services
  • Processing Innovation & Education Extension
  • Marketing (including Marketing Services, Digital, and Fashion Communications)

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.


Applications for the 2019 AWI Graduate Training Program are now closed.
