AWI introduces graduate programme to foster wool leaders
The Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) has introduced a new graduate training programme for graduates from a broad range of disciplines with a background in, or connection to, the Australian wool industry. The 18-month training programme has been designed to assist the ambitions of graduates wishing to pursue a career within the wool industry.

The formal training will provide the successful applicants with a thorough understanding of the wool supply chain from raw fibre production right through to fashion. Each graduate will receive a mentor appropriate to their skill set and interests who will guide their development throughout the programme. It is just another way that the research, development and marketing organisation seeks to build capacity within the wool industry.

"The programme is designed to attract and acquire a diverse range of talented individuals who already have an interest in the Australian wool industry. We hope to support and foster the development of these individuals so that they can pursue a career in their chosen professional fields and become leaders within the wool industry in due time," Stuart McCullough, the chief executive officer of AWI, said.

The graduates will be given the opportunity to gain global exposure to the wool supply chain through two three-month international rotations. AWI has selected three graduates to take part in the inaugural 2018 AWI Graduate Training Program— Ellie Bigwood, Ben Madgwick, Blake Chandler.

"AWI's broad reach in the wool industry supply chain will allow me to pursue my interest in product and process innovation. New techniques and products are constantly being developed and I want to be at the forefront of these innovations," said Chandler. (RR)
