Our Graduate Programme

Fletcher Building’s 2019 Graduate Programme – applications are now closed.

You know what you want: you want to build a solid, successful career. And since you’re at the planning stage of this life-changing project, now’s the time to make sure you start out with the best possible foundation. You need strength and stability – but most importantly – you need confidence in the knowledge you’re joining a business with a track record for building greatness – in products, people and overall purpose.

While our roots are firmly in New Zealand, our footprint is truly global. And that footprint puts a world of opportunity at your fingertips. For you, it all begins with our purpose-designed Graduate Development Programme. We’ll put you right at the heart of our global operations – working alongside industry leaders and inspiring colleagues for the ultimate insight into what makes Fletcher Building tick. Will it be challenging? Yes. Will it be rewarding? Of course. Is it the ultimate way to make your future? Absolutely.

Our one-year Graduate Development Programme is designed to set you up for the future. With a focus on professional development, you will learn about Fletcher Building, develop your commercial acumen, focus on how to be productive, and how to personally develop yourself and your career. And alongside this, you will gain technical experience in your area of expertise. Our graduate roles vary across Corporate, Manufacturing and Construction, and whatever your expertise, we will support your journey. With exposure to multiple areas of our business, a mentor on hand every step of the way, and a network of graduates across the industry, we’re setting you up for success – success shaped around your interests and broader career goals.
