Pedestrian Group has launched an in-house graduate program aimed at identifying – and upskilling – the next generation of digital media professionals.
Called RAD GRADS, the 12-week fully paid graduate training program will be dedicated to giving young Aussies from underrepresented communities – including Indigenous Australians, those from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds, who live with a disability (see or unseen) and/or who identify as LGBTQIA+ – the tools and techniques required for a rewarding career in digital publishing.
Rad Graduates will shadow key stakeholders in the business, from editorial and native to creative projects and sales, for the duration of the program to ensure a well-rounded view of the business.
While full-time employment at Pedestrian Group isn’t a guarantee at the completion of the RAD GRADS program, Rad Graduates will be considered for any full-time open roles that are appropriate to their strengths and interests.
A variety of RAD GRADS positions will be available throughout 2021/22, including an Editorial Coordinator, Creative Projects Coordinator and Junior Web Developer. The roles will be advertised via Pedestrian Jobs and the Pedestrian Group site.
- All RAD GRADS roles will be dedicated to people from under-represented communities; these include young Australians from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds, Indigenous Australians, those who live with a disability (see or unseen) and/or who identify as LGBTQIA+
- RAD GRADS roles are open to either high school or recent tertiary graduates and those currently studying who are eager to gain on-the-job experience
- Positions are full-time for a duration of 3 months and include comprehensive training and mentorship from key leaders in multiple departments across the Pedestrian Group business
JP MacCormick, Pedestrian Group’s General Manager of Operations, said: “Pedestrian Group has long been an incubator for talented young Aussies. We recognise that getting a start in media is particularly challenging these days, so RAD GRADS is a way for us to not only identify the next generation of young media professionals but give underrepresented communities a headstart in their career.”
“Our hope is that, after the three months with us, we impart a well-rounded view of Australia’s largest youth-focused publisher and an expanded professional network for our Rad Graduates.”
