We know what it takes to help you do the best work of your life, and we’ll invest in you to ensure you get there.
With the Xero grad program, you’ll learn on the job, take ownership of your work, and find out how your career can flourish.
You’ll get the flexibility to build your skills, the opportunity to push yourself professionally, and the support you need to bring your ideas to fruition.
The graduate program starts in February and runs for 12 months. After the program, you’re guaranteed a permanent position in line with your career aspirations.
We have four different streams of grad programs in Australia, plus internship opportunities.
Shape your future with the Xero grad program.
MELBOURNE | CANBERRA
If you're looking for a career as an engineer or data specialist, then this is the program for you.
Technical grads complete four rotations of three months each, typically across fullstack, front-end, back-end, mobile, and data reliability. These rotations give you an opportunity to diversify your skills and meet new people.
The design program at Xero includes roles in our product design and media teams in Melbourne. These roles change each year as we only offer grad roles when we’re able to support them. Check out the design program page for all the details.
Design grads spend the full year in the same area gaining in-depth skills and knowledge in their specific field.
MELBOURNE | SYDNEY
Business programs are a brand new Xero offering for 2021. These roles are based in teams that support our staff and customers.
