Careers

 

At DA we’re in the business of creating and sourcing products and services for a world where our clients’ customers are increasingly demanding, connected and empowered. We seek to accomplish this by being number one in client services and delivery and that means we need the very best people on our team.

Our core values are:

Customer Care - Customers are our priority – without them, we have no purpose
Integrity - The way we go about our business internally and externally matters
Unity - We are one team, supportive of each other with shared goals
Passion & Competence - We are passionate about being the best at what we do for our customers, our company and ourselves

We are always on the lookout for people with the right attitude to uphold these values as well as a broad range of skills across applications and infrastructure technology and experience and exposure to the financial services industry.

Current Opportunities

 

DA Graduate Program

We're always looking for fresh talent which is why we established the DA Graduate Program.

The purpose of the program is to establish a talent pipeline for long-term succession planning and/or to fulfil shorter term resourcing needs. By establishing clear development paths, we aim to assist our graduates to progress successfully into a professional career at DA. 

Successful graduates are engaged under a two-year fixed-term contract with the intake commencing annually in February. The number of graduates selected to participate in the program will be determined year-to-year, subject to business requirements at the time, though typically 1-2 graduates commence annually in each of our IT streams.

Our greatest need for graduate placements is in Technology and Delivery. Our graduates are selected based on their area of interest (i.e. software or hardware) and are invited to take part in a rotation placement program dedicated to that stream. Sometimes our graduates are ideally suited to work on specific projects and may bypass the rotation program entirely to transition into a specific job role. Flexibility and development are key factors to the success of our program.

We have a unique partnering arrangement with UniSA who assist us to source our high performing graduates each year, however, we are also happy to consider ‘Expressions of Interest’ from eligible graduates who have studied at other Australian tertiary institutions. An ‘Expression of Interest’ ad seeking candidate applications will appear on our Careers Page when active recruitment commences each year. Graduate candidates must have permanent resident status. 

DA Student Grant

The DA Student Grant is awarded to a qualifying final year IT student at UniSA each year. The grant was launched in 2014 primarily to assist the recipient with study expenses, but also to help promote our newly established Graduate Program across the University campus.

To be eligible for DA Grant, applying students must:

  • be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident;
  • provide a personal written statement addressing their career goals in the field of ICT and how the grant will benefit them in achieving their goals; and
  • have an interest in the DA Graduate Program.

In an effort to keep our talented young people in South Australia, preference is given to students who plan to live and work in Adelaide after they complete their tertiary program.
