Six benefits of joining our Summer Vacation Program
We like to think of ours as any good relationship – and that means we give a lot back. So, when it comes to rewarding and supporting our summer vacationers, we do this in several different ways throughout your journey with us.
Here are the top six things you can look forward to:
1. Top students considered for our Telstra Graduate Program
Our 12-week Summer Vacation Program has been specifically designed to ensure it is closely aligned to the pathways we offer in our Telstra Graduate Program.
This means if you perform well in the Program, you’ll be considered for early offers and could join us when you graduate.
2. Immersive experiences
You’ll be able to see first-hand the incredible and innovative work our teams are doing across Telstra. You’ll be given opportunities to explore the Global Operations Centre (GOC), the Security Operations Centre (SOC), 5G operations centre and Telstra Labs.
Our summer vacations have worked on some pretty cool projects like Internet of Things, vehicle to vehicle communication tools and emergency services communications. You can learn more about the projects our summer vacations and graduates work on here.
3. Social connections
We know that your time at Telstra shouldn’t all be about the work, so we give you plenty of opportunities to network and socialise with your peers and leaders across the business.
These include informal coffee or lunch dates and connecting with colleagues across a range of different forums. We also encourage you to join groups with likeminded people, such as our Spectrum group for LGBTI+ colleagues and their allies, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Network (ATSI) and our Brilliant Connected Women group, which is our network on gender equality. You can read more about our commitment to diversity and inclusion here.
4. Flexible working
We have adopted an ‘All Roles Flex’ working arrangement, which acknowledges that flexible working means different things to different people.
Working from home and getting paid volunteering leave are just some of the options available to our summer vacationers. You can talk to us about what works for you when you start with us. You can also learn more here about all roles flex policy here.
5. You’ll be supported
Whether it’s your leader, a team member, our early careers team or one of our current graduates, there are several people who’ll be supporting you through the Program.
6. You’ll be part of an award-winning Program
Our Summer Vacation Program has recently been named as one of the Top Internship Programs for 2021 by the Australian Association of Graduate Employers. The accolade was based off experiences of our previous summer vacationers.The accolade was based off experiences of our previous summer vacationers. You can see the full list here.
