I really enjoyed my time in the ACCC Graduate Program. For me the highlights were being able to work in diverse areas of the organisation, working on a large number of different projects and the supportive work environment.
During the Graduate Program I completed rotations in the Legal Group, the Australian Energy Regulator, and Transport. By completing three different rotations, including an interstate rotation, I was able to gain a well-rounded view of the ACCC’s work. As a graduate I was given ownership of projects, presented papers to Commission, engaged with stakeholders and always participated in meaningful work. It was also an interesting process gaining an understanding of different industries.
The training provided as part of the Program was also great. I found the training such as Writing and Presentation Skills and Regulatory Economics really helped as I was immediately able to put those skills to use in my work.
