Hatch named one of Australia’s Top Intern Programs for seventh consecutive year

May 16, 2023

Brisbane, Australia—Hatch has once again been named one of Australia’s Top Intern Programs. For the seventh consecutive year, we’ve been honored by the Australia Association of Graduate Employers (AAGE) as a top workplace for interns gaining work experience during their studies.

The Top Interns Program list is determined by the interns themselves through a survey of more than 1,800 participants. The survey is completed anonymously, and interns are asked to rate their employer in 15 different categories including:

  • Induction and training.
  • Content of work
  • Ability to work on different projects or in different areas of the organization.
  • Quality of supervision provided by manager
  • Amount of responsibility
  • Access to senior management
  • Feedback on performance
  • Social life
  • Organization's culture and values

At Hatch, we believe that learning happens best when trying out and applying new skills on the job. Given the diverse nature of our work across sectors, interns are provided many opportunities to develop skills relevant to the work they do and their field of study. They act as a technical resource on challenging projects, learning to apply analytical, conceptual, research, and planning skills to deliver exceptional work with their teams. Interns are also exposed to modern tools, equipment, and software. In addition to that, they gain exposure to a network in their respective fields and across the business, facilitating further mentorship and guidance.

“We feel a great sense of responsibility in training our next generation of engineers, scientists, and technologists, and take great pride in providing a strong intern program,” shared Jan Kwak, Hatch’s regional managing director, Australia-Asia. “We believe that the experience that interns gain is foundational for their success as they enter the workforce. The world is facing many complex challenges and our interns will be part of the generation to find the solutions to those challenges. It’s inspiring and energizing to work alongside our interns who show such curiosity and passion for their work.”

Earlier this year, we were also named one of the Top Graduate Employers by the AAGE, cementing our position as a top workplace for young professionals.
