Grad Profiles

Meet some of our past grads

We could tell you how great the Xero grad program is until we turn blue in the face, but it’s probably better if you hear it straight from some of our staff and past grads.

Come and meet us

What better way to find out if Xero’s where you want to start your career than talking to some of our people in person?

Careers fairs and Code with Xero

Come along to one of the careers fairs around the country, or pop along to a Code with Xero event where you can find out about the tools we use and how we use them. We’ll even do some live demos – no experience necessary!

Our Code with Xero events will be advertised by your university careers service and it’s essential to RSVP, so please log in and let us know if you’re coming.

Behind the Screens

Come along to one of our Behind the Screens events and meet the Xero product design team. You’ll be taken through some projects and get an insight into the design process. 

Register for your space at a Behind the Screens event in Auckland or Wellington.

Diversity at Xero

Our focus on diversity and inclusion creates better outcomes for our people and our customers. We acknowledge, respect and celebrate all the ways our staff are different and we create an inclusive culture so we can really tap into the power of our differences.

In 2018, Xero NZ was awarded the Rainbow Tick, a diversity and inclusion award that formally recognises us as a safe and inclusive workplace for the LGBTIQ+ community.
