About the Program

Toyota Finance Australia (TFA) is now looking for its next generation of professionals to join our established graduate development program commencing in February 2023.

We offer a learning and development opportunity that puts you in the driver’s seat of your graduate program experience and ultimately, your career.

Opportunities are available in the Sydney and Melbourne offices.

We will work with you to design your two year program as you identify your preferred business areas. The program will help you to access world-class learning and development opportunities which include; structured workshops, formal qualifications and on the job learning, whilst shadowing industry leaders. You will have a challenging two years, as you grow and transition from a university student to a lifelong learner in the workplace.

We invest in our graduates through a competitive salary and both personal and professional opportunities, empowering you to own your development. Your exposure to a broad spectrum of business operations will provide you with valuable insight into how Toyota Finance Australia is leading the future of mobility and revolutionising the automotive financial services industry in Australia.

We aim to get the best from you as you proactively contribute to the success of Toyota Finance Australia. We immerse our graduates in our kaizen culture, where we encourage continuous improvement.

We facilitate an environment of support and help you connect with your peers on the graduate program as well as build a network throughout the business, through the structured rotations.

Highlights of the program include exposure to many networking opportunities and immersion in our culture through our flexible hours, social activities and benefits.

One of our key program objectives is to offer support to graduates as they transition from students to early professionals and this is achieved as you rotate through different departments, accelerating your transferable skills and cross business knowledge. Our graduates are encouraged to take ownership of tasks and build up their own capabilities during each rotation by being involved in ‘real’ hands-on work. As your skillset and areas of interest evolve over the program duration, we encourage you to continue to explore areas beyond which you have studied.

Our program encourages resilience, self-reflection and being in the driver’s seat for your future. In the second half of the program, we partner with you in exploring career opportunities beyond the program and aim to guide your transition into permanent roles at Toyota Finance Australia.

What do we offer?

We encourage your talent, passion and belief to consistently explore and challenge the status quo. Our focus on continuous improvement means people grow professionally and personally. We offer on-the-job development including rotation programs, mentoring, coaching and secondments.

You will be supported to make a difference in our business. The reason people love working here is because of our culture and the feeling of belonging. It is about being proud to work for Toyota Finance Australia.

We also offer a range of excellent employee benefits, learn more here
