Saab continues to diversify Graduate role offerings

2 min read

Saab Australia (Saab) continues to expand its Graduate Program, offering positions in 9 different academic disciplines.


Saab Australia has welcomed 21 new recruits in fields ranging from Mechatronic Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science and Software Engineering, of which 4 have previously worked at Saab as part of the summer internship program.

Saab Australia Managing Director Andy Keough said that offering a diverse range of roles for graduates is in line with Saab’s strategic business growth, and contributes to delivering Saab’s expanding defence projects across Australia.

“Saab is passionate about innovation and we are committed to offering a range of opportunities to help support graduates and students find meaningful learning experiences in the defence and civil solutions industry.”

“As Saab continues to diversify and develop world-leading products, services and solutions for the defence industry, we are attracting the most talented new hires to enhance our capabilities and capacity for further expansion.”

Saab has again been recognised as one of the top 75 graduate employers in the country, based on votes from a national pool of graduates released last week.

“I am thrilled to welcome the 2022 cohort of graduates to Saab Australia and trust that they enjoy the collaborative working culture and supportive environment that this experience will provide, whilst also expanding their professional growth and learning valuable new skills,” he said.

Saab’s two-year graduate program is tailored to support graduates’ current skills, developmental needs, preferences and business needs. All graduates are offered ongoing employment with Saab at the end of their program.

Saab’s interns spend 12 weeks with the company over their summer university holidays. They are integrated across Saab’s business disciplines, in line with their degree and have the opportunity to contribute to the delivery of real-life projects which support the business.

Several other state-based graduate programs also exist to support defence industry career pathways across specialist areas like project and business management, design and engineering, operations and trade, and ICT.
