Indian Wipro invests in Australian graduates

Interview process to find top candidates for six-month training and full-time employment

Wipro is investing in its Australian footprint with the introduction of a hiring program targeting local graduates. Wipro is an Indian IT consulting, business process outsourcing (BPO), and research and development (R&D) company. It has Australian offices in Sydney and Melbourne.

The program – which replicates Wipro’s initiatives across the rest of its markets of operation – shortlists graduates based on interview performance; the company has already commenced speaking with students in Australian universities.

“The Australian graduate hiring program is another important step in our global initiative to localise our workforce and closely follow the programs rolled out across the US, UK and Africa,” Wipro human resources senior vice-president and global head, Saurabh Govil, said.

“Each of these are created specifically for the market and leverages Wipro’s industry leading talent development exercise and infrastructure.”

“The key mandate is to provide practical experience to the graduates.”

Those hired following the interview process will be enrolled in a six-month training program that will be concluded at the company’s headquarters in Bangalore.

The first three months consist of training in programming and technical skills, while the final period involves practical training by shadowing live customer projects.

Wipro claims the program is structure with focus on mentorship and frequent feedback to individuals.

On completion, graduates will work as full-time employees in one of Wipro’s Australian facilities.
