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 over the past four years, with graduates securing full-time roles at The Star Entertainment Group after completing their 14-month rotations.
The Technical Graduate Leadership Program provides you with a unique opportunity to gain valuable on-the-job experiences across different areas of our technical departments, with the focus of enhancing your leadership capabilities as well as your technical 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 Technical Graduate, your program will involve three phases.
Here you will gain two weeks of exposure to the key functions of the gaming and hospitality industry while rotating through the core operational areas of the business.
Your Technical Rotations are where you will spend most of your time, enabling you to gain a comprehensive understanding of The Star’s professional streams. Your rotations will involve five compulsory business areas of Architecture, Business Analytics, Data, Office of the CIO and Project Management Office.
This is the core specialisation phase where you will have the opportunity to work in an area of interest, which will allow you to get 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.
