OUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

We love candidates who go the extra mile and talk passionately about retail and TFG. Do some research on TFG and our brands, current local and global retail trends and whatever info you can find on our financial performance or relevant news in the media.

We know that you are awesome on all levels but if you meet with us, you need to let us see just HOW awesome you are! Prepare yourself emotionally as well as intellectually. It's never as intense in practice and being prepared will help you avoid becoming overwhelmed. Focus on your strengths and be aware of your developmental areas. Be prepared to provide examples of situations where you have demonstrated various skills. Speak to yourself in the mirror, speak to your friends and get them to rate you as a candidate.

One of the key focus areas of the graduate program is the development of technical expertise within a specific field. Therefore we do not necessarily expect you to have the technical skills that are required to be successful in the role – this will be built over time during your development program. In order to build expertise in your role and achieve the goals of the development program you will need to display a high level of personal leadership. This means that you must be able to:

  • communicate effectively and present your ideas in a professional manner,
  • work with people,
  • network and build relationships,
  • adapt to change,
  • plan and organise your activities in line with your professional goals,
  • demonstrate commercial thinking, and
  • understand and demonstrate TFG’s values

As the graduate program is a full-time program, we prefer that all applicant are graduates or in their final year of study.
