  • What happens at the end of the 2 year program?

    You will work closely with our dedicated Graduate Manager to find your long term role at the end of the program that best suits your skills and career aspirations.

  • What rotations will I complete?

    AEMO ensures a well rounded and enriching experience, focused on supporting graduates' development, in line with their future career goals. Through careful consultation with our Graduates, we have found exposure across a range of AEMOs core activities to be the most beneficial.  

    Our rotational program is broken into 3 core streams: 

    • Engineering  
    • Analytics/Data Science 
    • Digital/IT  

    The degree you completed at university will determine which stream best applies. The Engineering and Analytics steam will follow a similar program, covering 3 core areas of the business – Operations, System Design and Reform Delivery. The Digital rotations will include a range of IT areas such as Cyber Security, Architecture, Applications, Infrastructure & Networks. A full range of rotations options will be discussed in more detail at our in person Assessment Centers.
