About The Program
Launched in 2018, The Star’s Graduate Leadership Program creates a custom ‘fast-track’ pathway for candidates who have recently completed an undergraduate degree at a recognised university or educational institution.
The Graduate Program has rapidly expanded since its inception, with graduates securing full-time roles at The Star Entertainment Group after completing their 14-month rotations.
The Hospitality Graduate Leadership Program provides you with a unique opportunity to gain valuable on-the-job experiences across different areas of our Hospitality departments, with the focus of enhancing your leadership capabilities. You will be exposed to many growth opportunities throughout the various projects you will undertake, providing you with exclusive insight into what it takes to drive a successful entertainment business. As a Hospitality Graduate your program will involve five phases:
Food and Beverage Rotation
Here you will gain exposure to what is required to run our bars and restaurants, while also experiencing the daily functions and aspects of our event spaces.
During your hotel rotation, you will gain insider knowledge into The Star’s diverse selection of hotels and residential apartments. Here, you will experience how our hotel departments collaborate and cultivate a shared vision to maximise guest experiences.
Corporate Support Rotation
Your corporate support rotation will enable you to gain a comprehensive understanding of The Star’s professional streams through exposure to our different corporate departments.
During this rotation, you will gain an understanding of what is required to run a successful 24/7 gaming operation.
This is the core specialisation phase where you will have the opportunity to work in an area of interest, which will allow you to gain a sneak peek into your potential future career at The Star.
Applications open early in the year, where you can submit your resume, cover letter and academic transcript. We believe that graduates are much more than just their academic results, therefore we take into consideration aspects such as leadership skills, teamworking experiences and your previous employment.
Applicants will be asked to conduct an online video assessment, where you will be presented with a series of questions and given time to prepare and record your answers.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to a group assessment. This is where you will have the opportunity to learn more about the program, showcase your skills and become involved in fun and interactive assessments.
Based on your performance throughout the group assessment, you will be invited to attend a final interview with our Graduate Program leaders, where you will be asked a series of behavioural questions and given the opportunity to discover more about the Graduate Program.
Applicants will also undergo reference checks from at least two previous employers.
After all applicants have been interviewed, we will be in touch regardless of the outcome. Those who are successful will also have their employment contracts and relevant forms sent to them for review.
