Graduate Development Program
Why Our GDP is important to us.
Our continual growth remains positive, pioneering sustainable progress in PNG into the 21st century. We lead a diversely, skilled and agile workforce of over 2500 employees; the energy source of our business success.
Our Graduate Development Program aims to attract, develop and retain our future business leaders with mindsets of innovation and valour. We value mindsets built with honesty, excellence, respect, customer focus and sustainability and are in search of team players looking to build a career with such values.
We have been in the business for over 100 years, and are still in search for something new- Maybe it's You.
How it Works.
According to Professor D. A. Kolb, 'knowledge results from the combination of grasping experience and transforming it'.
Here at Steamships Trading Company, we provide the right exposure and opportunities to assist your professional development. In our program, you have four twelve-month rotations in any of the following industries: Logistics and Transport, Manufacturing. Property and Hotels and Corporate HR, Finance and Affairs.
During each rotation, graduates are challenged to balance multiple projects and daily department taskings; with minimum supervision and time. Each rotation is also complemented with structured classroom sessions led by experienced trainers for soft skill development and depending on the systems your project might involve, we'll also equip you with the right training for that too.
You get to grasp your experience and build your legacy as you dream it to be- You choose your own story.
Help and Support.
You know that nervous feeling when you enter a room full of strangers for the first time and you've got to work with them - we know that feeling too.
Our Graduate Development Program offers lots of support. We have an online sharing platform set up specifically to connect you with our GDP alumni and other graduates who are still on the program. We also have quarterly Meet & Greet events so you can link in person and meet other established young leaders outside of the company and grow your professional network.
Every rotation, you are also presented with opportunities to have direct one-on-one meetings and coaching from our senior top level managers including the General Managers, Finance and HR Managers across the business.
As long as you are in the Graduate Development Program, you will be connected to us. If you have any questions throughout the program, our Corporate HR and Finance Departments will always be just a phonecall away.
