Get a foot in the door with Toll
STARTING a career on the right foot was important to Ajay Gopal, a 2017 Toll Group graduate who is currently on rotation at Toll City in Singapore.
"I was looking for an organisation that would provide a great amount of variety through its graduate program,” Ajay said.
"Starting my professional career on the right foot was important and a vital part of that consists of being exposed to a vast array of roles in various sectors. The Toll graduate program has given me that opportunity.”
Applications for the 2018 Graduate Program have opened, with the program broadening its scope for potential applicants to be based in Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore.
Now in its second year, the Graduate Program is designed to develop a pool of diverse future leaders across the Toll Group and Japan Post.
It is structured to give graduates exposure to the company's three operating divisions: Global Logistics, Global Express and Global Forwarding in order to gain a deep insight and understanding of the logistics industry during their tenure.
The Graduate Program aims to target graduates with Logistics and Supply Chain, Business and Commerce, and STEM degrees who have recently graduated or are about to graduate, and who are fluent in a second language.
"They get to see the end to end process and build their knowledge of how sites operate from the ground up,” Graduate Program Manager Sharon Abbott said.
"This is critical to develop them as our future leaders across the organisation.”
Successful applicants get to spend time with mentors for career advice and support as well as enjoy networking opportunities during their time at Toll.
