Schneider Electric nurtures its future leaders

SCHNEIDER Electric has completed the final stage of the Australian Graduate Program recruitment, selecting 10 engineering graduates for an intensive two years of training.

The Schneider Electric Graduate Program was developed to attract talented, technology-ready gradates who have the skills and potential that will enable Schneider Electric to continue to provide innovative energy management technology and services.

More than 200 electrical, mechanical and electrical/computer science engineering students applied for the program. Candidates engaged in an extensive application process, including a written application, phone interview and psychological assessment.

According to Schneider Electric, it was seeking future leaders, and was particularly attract to graduates who are on the cutting edge of the technology and possess the skills and passion for a more energy efficient future.

In early August, a shortlist of 28 engineering graduates attended Schneider Electric Graduate Assessment Centres in Sydney and Melbourne. The assessment days were designed to highlight each candidate’s leadership potential and ability to react in different situations.

Candidates were assessed by a combination of engineers, human resources, senior business leaders and a psychologist. They were also required to develop energy efficient solutions to hypothetical problems.

The 10 engineering graduates that were selected will engage in a two-year structured program that will enable them to develop competencies in technical, energy and end user solutions, sales, project execution and leadership.

They will be assigned mentors throughout the program and, on completion, will be offered the opportunity to work with Schneider Electric locally.
