Graduate Engineers at Fisher & Paykel have had long and rewarding careers that have taken them across the globe and in to senior executive roles. The CEO, Dan Witten-Hannah started as a grad in the Product Development team.
They take pride in providing real world problems to solve, giving graduates an opportunity to see their work become design features in products of the future.
Joining Fisher & Paykel in either Auckland or Dunedin gives you the opportunity to work with like minded individuals who are passionate about applying their skills and knowledge to products that are in the heart of the home.
Fisher & Paykel have tried to avoid the traditional CV, Cover Letter and page of questions approach to applying for a role this year. Instead, they are using a quiz to get to know a little more about you. After that stage, candidates can expect to be invited to a video interview to learn more about their communication style and personal approach to work. Finally, when you get invited in to an interview, your technical skills and knowledge will be assessed.
Successful graduates have an innate sense of curiosity and a growth mindset, which is also a common trait in many of their leaders and executive team. Their design philosophy is all about creating human-centred appliances, and this focus is also how they think about being a part of the business. They want to know who you are as a person, before considering your technical ability.
Fisher & Paykel pay competitive salaries to their graduates. They are always looking at ways to improve the experience for new starter cohorts and explore holistic development opportunities. They also partner up their new starters with buddies and mentors, to support them development and growth in the business.
