We can’t wait to host our second Australia and New Zealand based event of the year! Taking place on Thursday 4th August, we have signed up 16 fantastic exhibitors, including our event sponsors Department of Transport, Victoria.

During the day, all our exhibitors will be ready to network with attendees, and many of them will be presenting live sessions and sitting on our panel discussion featuring women in working in industry.

Speakers will talk about their personal experiences of working in their industry, the exciting opportunities available at their company and what graduates can expect when applying for roles!

Meet the Speakers!

“I am looking forward to meeting you all virtually and speaking about my journey which led to my current role as an Information Security Consultant for Westpac.

“I will be sharing my history as an Engineer in oil and gas with Schlumberger over the past 12 years: I joined the company looking for a borderless career, and I did get what I asked. I also want to shed some light on the opportunities Schlumberger offer and our culture of inclusion; that is one of the things that makes me the proudest of continuing to work here”. – Gabriela Soter Roxo, New Talent Recruiting & University Relations Manager, Schlumberger

“I will cover a little bit about BAE Systems and what we do, our values such as inclusion and diversity, and our early careers programs that apply to this group of Graduate and Internship roles.” – Hayley Thompson-Hill, Talent Acquisition Specialist – Early Careers, BAE Systems.
