Yes. MECCA Brands is only able to offer positions to Graduates that are Australian or New Zealand Citizens or Permanent Residents
We are so sorry if this rules you out from our Graduate program. We love our MECCA Beauties from all over the world and we
value different perspectives in our Graduate program. But the thing is, at the moment we are so lucky to receive so many
applications from strong, talented and qualified applicants who are Australian or New Zealand Citizens, or Australian
Permanent Residents, that we are not able to offer Graduate positions outside of these groups.
Our purpose at MECCA Brands is to enable our customers to look and feel their best. Our stores are our beating heart. There's

products, than by spending time in one of our vibrant stores as an in-store Host.
We therefore will only accept Graduates who are either:

There are currently around 350 team members working in our Support Centre and this number seems to keep growing every week!
In one word, open. We are open to ideas, open to boldness, open to trying new things, open to working across teams… and,
fittingly, our Support Centre is completely open plan (you can take a peek at our Support Centre on Vogue Australia’s site)!
We are driven. One of our values is to do whatever it takes.
We work collaboratively. We hustle. We are fair. We practice generosity. We celebrate successes. And we have fun.
At this stage, we don’t offer an internship or work experience program in our Support Centre.
But we are always growing and evolving here at MECCA, and we never say never!

No need to prepare an application letter. Simply answer some questions, attach your CV and academic transcript, and submit.
A handful of the questions ask for a slightly longer form written answer, and we are very curious to see your responses
and what you have to say, so we encourage you to take your time completing the application.
We aim to respond to all applicants by Anzac Day 2019.
The Graduate Recruitment Forum is a great way for us to get to know each other.
Come along prepared to ask us all and any questions you have about life at MECCA Brands and the Graduate program. And be
ready to participate in some scenario-based discussions and interviews with the MECCA Brands team.
Due to the nature of the activities at the Graduate Recruitment Forum, we ask all invited applicants to attend the Forum in person in Melbourne.
For Graduates with current or past experience as an in-store Host in a MECCA Brands store, the program starts in our Support
Centre in early February 2020 (we'll confirm the precise date with successful applicants).
For Graduates without in-store MECCA experience, you will receive in-store training in October 2019 and join us as a Summer
Store Host over the 2019/2020 summer.
No, unfortunately. All our 2020 Graduates will start in our Support Centre in February 2020. We decided to make sure all our 2020 Graduates start at the same time because it will ensure that all our Graduates start the program with a supportive cohort and progress through the great training and projects we offer during the program at the same rate.
Our Graduates will complete up to four rotations in different departments, each approximately six months long.
The rotations provide our Graduates with an all-access pass to a variety of departments within our Support Centre. It is
an exclusive opportunity to expose yourself to a variety of work and practical experience within the Support Centre,
and to launch your career as one of our future game changers. The rotations will allow you to explore which areas of
the business you are most passionate about and would like to find a permanent role in.
At each stage you will receive support from your coach, your department manager and a buddy.
No. You will be offered a position as a MECCA Brands Graduate, not specifically to any department. We’ll then work closely with you to understand your career goals and aspirations, and allocate you to teams and opportunities that will help you develop and grow (subject to the needs of the Support Centre).
Yes! The first week of our Graduate program is dedicated to formal learning and development, to equip you with the skills to excel at MECCA Brands right from the start.
We also provide you with a wide range of continual support and training throughout the Graduate program, including:

MECCA Brands, the types of projects you can expect to work on (depending on your department) could be:
All positions in the 2020 MECCA Brands Graduate Program are full-time salaried positions and will be two-year fixed term contracts commencing in early February 2020.
That's really a question for you to answer during the Graduate program - and we will be here supporting you throughout the
process to get you there. There will be a range of opportunities open to you as you come to the end of the Graduate program
to take your career to the next level in MECCA, be it in our Support Centre, in-store or in our Distribution Centre.
Please feel free to contact us with any other questions about the MECCA Graduate program at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you are based in Melbourne, please come meet us at the Big Meet Melbourne on Friday 22 March 2019.
