The role

Working with the partner consulting team, you’ll support our accounting and bookkeeping customers, known as our partners, by collaborating with the partner sales team to migrate our partners to Xero’s cloud-based tools.

As a partner consulting grad, you’ll present Xero demonstrations, run technical consulting sessions, and manage data conversion projects. You’ll also gain valuable exposure to many different types of accounting practices.

What we’d like to see from you

We’re looking for someone with a sound understanding of finance and accounting principles, including how data flows through accounting systems. We welcome grads with a commerce, accounting or related degree.

Ideally you’ll:

  • have experience with managing data with advanced use of Excel
  • be an excellent communicator, both written and verbally
  • not be afraid of being in the spotlight
  • have a great work ethic, initiative and results focus

If this sounds like you, get in touch! We’d love to hear from you.

How to apply

Due to the number of applications we receive, we ask that you only apply for one role in one location. Please take some time to research each opportunity available before submitting your application.

If you’re invited to a grad day, it will include technical and soft skills interviews, as well as group and individual challenges.

Applications open on 28 February 2022 and close on 29 April 2022.

The application process

You’ll progress through the application process in these stages.

Step 1: Submit CV and meet eligibility criteria

The first thing you need to do is meet the eligibility criteria.

Our eligibility criteria for the graduate program are:

  • Full-time working rights
  • Fewer than 12 months professional working experience in relevant industries
  • Availability to start full-time in February 2023

Our eligibility criteria for internships are:

  • Availability for full-time work from November 2022 through to February 2023
  • Be in your penultimate year of study in your chosen field

When you apply, your CV will only be used to verify your eligibility and won’t be used for screening purposes.

Step 2: Complete a values assessment

Once you’ve met the eligibility criteria, you’ll be invited to complete a values assessment. Find out more about Xero’s values.

Step 3: Complete behavioural and skills assessments

Then you’ll be asked to complete a behavioural assessment, which you can practice here.

Step 4: Record a short video interview for our team

Next, you’ll be invited to pre-record a video interview for our team.

If your video interview is successful, you’ll be invited to attend a grad day.

We’ll review all applications before making a decision so you can expect to hear from us in June 2022.

Step 5: Attend the virtual grad day

The grad day is a half-day virtual event where you’ll be assessed across three different activities: an interview, a technical assessment, and a group activity. You’ll also have an opportunity to learn more about Xero and the grad program, and meet some previous grads.
