Program Overview

The AWI Graduate Training Program provides successful applicants with a thorough understanding of the wool supply chain from fibre to fashion.

The 18-month program starts each year in March and is based primarily at the AWI office in Sydney, where the graduates gain exposure to many areas of the AWI business including On-Farm Research, Processing Innovation and Education Extension, Woolgrower Services, Global Marketing, Digital, and Business Services.

Graduates are also given the opportunity to gain global exposure to the wool supply chain through international rotations. The program also provides the graduates with professional training and development opportunities, to further enhance their career within the industry.

The program is open to those who have graduated in 2020 and 2021, and is aimed at graduates from a broad cross section of disciplines who have a background in or connection with the Australian Wool Industry.

A Message from Stuart McCullough – CEO

‘’We are focussed on attracting and retaining the best talent to the wool industry and we see the AWI Graduate Training Program as one of the mechanisms to future proof human resources in our industry. The Program has been extremely successful since it’s inception in 2018, creating a talent pipeline for the company, and creating opportunities for those from a wool growing background, wanting to enter the workforce.’’
