What does BAE Systems look for in graduate program applicants?

BAE Systems Australia

Ready to kick-start your career? Here's what it takes to join the BAE Systems Australia graduate program.

Applicants need to have a bachelor or master’s degree completed within the last two years and be available to start full-time work in January.

As part of the application process, you’ll need to impress with your clear and engaging communication skills and demonstrate that you’re a champion at collaboration – how you’ve previously connected effortlessly with colleagues and clients, fostering a culture of teamwork and support.

You’ll also be considered in relation to the company’s values and behaviours. 

BAE Systems is steered by three core values: Trusted, Innovative, and Bold. All employees have a part to play in fulfilling its purpose and the company looks for people who can demonstrate these values, as they guide decision-making and influence culture.

But what do these words mean?

Trusted’ means being committed and giving your best every day, doing what you say you will, and doing the right thing.

Innovative’ is being curious and seeking out new ways to make things better, learning constantly – from both successes and failures, and turning ideas into actions.

Bold’ refers to being courageous, speaking up, stepping forward, seizing opportunities and realising big ambitions.

To set yourself up for success, try to use some examples of how you’ve demonstrated these values in your application and interviews.
