AWI CEO John Roberts: graduates get understanding of wool industry from fibre to fashion.

APPLICATIONS have opened for the 2023 intake of the Australian Wool Innovation Graduate Training Program.

AWI chief executive officer John Roberts said the 18-month program is seeking applicants graduates from a broad cross section of disciplines with a background in or connection with the industry.

“2023 will bring the AWI Graduate Training Program’s fifth intake of graduates.

“Having worked closely with the past and current graduates, I’ve seen first-hand the value of having such an all-encompassing program within the industry, covering the full supply chain, and the benefits it provides the successful graduates in enhancing their career within wool,” he said.

“We continue to focus on attracting and retaining the top talent and the program is just one way we have in creating a talent pipeline and future proofing human resources in the industry.”

AWI said the graduate training program provides successful applicants with a thorough understanding of the wool supply chain from fibre to fashion.

The 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 its divisions of 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 international rotations in London and China, AWI said. The program also provides the graduates with professional training and development opportunities, to further enhance their career within the industry.
