Our graduate success stories – where will your career take you?

Landgate Graduate

Mohammed Ali

"The Landgate Graduate Program taught me about the importance of building relationships alongside technical skills. I was drawn to Landgate partly because of its unique position as a statutory authority and its reputation for innovation. In the Graduate Program, I was able to do rotations in several different areas which helped me figure out fairly quickly what I enjoyed and what I was good at doing. One of the most rewarding aspects at Landgate is knowing the impact of the work you’re doing, whether it’s automating a tedious and manual process or organising events for Landgate Youth or putting your hand up for one of the Landgate Hack projects. This is now my third year at Landgate, and the learning (and growth that comes with it) hasn’t stopped."

Kim Nguyen

"The Graduate Program at Landgate was fundamental in allowing me to decide the direction I wanted my career to go. I did an undergraduate degree in Commerce and majored in property development and valuations. Given my property background the initial idea was that I would spend my time at Landgate rotating through the different property valuations teams within the agency. After 10 months in the Valuations Services Business Unit, I knew it was not the career for me and I decided to go back to university and study law. Landgate encouraged my career change and placed me in the legal team before I had even started studying. The flexibility and uniqueness of the graduate program to accommodate to each individual and their career "wants and needs" is extremely helpful in allowing graduates to find out where their passion is.”

"I applied for the 2020 Landgate general Graduate Program stream, unfortunately being deemed unsuccessful after progressing through the final assessment center stage of the process. Despite being unsuccessful, I was thrilled to receive a call from Landgate a few weeks later letting me know that they had found a role somewhere else in the agency that I was deemed suitable for. Landgate keeping your resume details on file after the graduate application process is a massive positive from this program, as they actively look for roles which may lend themselves to entry-level workers. Since starting at Landgate, I have been given a number of opportunities to work in different teams, learn new skills and transfer between departments – eventually leading me to be working in the Communications team, which was what I studied at university."
