The role

As a graduate in the Xero internal IT team, you’ll be responsible for providing outstanding customer service and support to Xero’s rapidly growing internal user base. As this is a user-facing role, you’ll be a highly visible representative of our team, providing other Xero staff with the tools they need to do the best work of their lives.

IT support is not just dedicated to providing world-class technical support and technology, we’re also dedicated to providing the highest levels of service to our users.

At Xero, you’ll have access to the latest technology and work with world-class IT management software. We use both Windows and Mac, so you’ll get to experience a broad range of different IT solutions.

During your time as a graduate, you’ll get to work with our global IT Support team, spend time learning from our infrastructure and compliance team, and be introduced to different aspects of the people systems environment.

What we’d like to see from you

You’ll be a great listener, an out-of-the-box thinker and someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment.

We’re looking for applicants with a technology-focused degree such as computer science, or someone in the process of gaining a comparable qualification.

Ideally you’ll:

  • have a passion and excitement for technology
  • possess outstanding interpersonal and customer service skills
  • have great written and verbal skills
  • demonstrate great multi-tasking and time management skills
  • be a logical problem solver
  • work well both autonomously and in a team environment

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.
