The future at your fingertips

Develop a meaningful career and thrive in technology.

Join one of Australia's top 100 graduate employers, as voted by you.

For years, we’ve helped hundreds of grads develop meaningful careers and thrive in the technology industry. Now, it's your turn to begin your successful journey.

We support organisations of all sizes, from small business startups to government agencies. We can offer you a variety of opportunities across our locations. You may be part of a project to create new and sustainable solutions for communities, help to protect companies from the latest cybersecurity threats, or taking part in creative and innovative workshops with our customers.

Whatever your interests, talk to us and we’ll match you to one of our exciting roles. It's just one of the reasons why we were nominated as one of the Financial Review's top 100 graduate employers.

IT is all about you.

If you’re passionate about using technology to inspire communities and customers to be better connected than ever before, we want to hear from you.

We’re looking for:

  • Self-starters who are motivated to kick-start their careers in technology
  • Team players who have excellent interpersonal skills (you’ll be working with people just as much as computers)
  • Customer-centric superstars — we pride ourselves on delivering our best work to our customers
  • Awesome problem-solvers who have fresh ideas and are willing to give anything a go.

You don't even need a degree in IT to apply for our graduate programme. You just need passion and enthusiasm.

In return, we'll help you develop your talents, learn new skills, and give you the chance to collaborate with some of our pioneering leaders. Get hands-on experience from day one.

A happy Datacom employee

Explore the possibilities of a career in tech with our free virtual work experience platform.

Recent Datacom research shows that while 40% of people have considered studying for a career in technology, just 5% end up enrolling in tertiary education or courses specialising in information technology (IT)*. We want to change that.

Our Virtual Learning Platform enables high school students and early career starters to develop practical skills in four key tech pathways – cloud, automation, cyber and software development – providing them with an introduction to some of what a career in tech has to offer (and a certificate of completion at the end). Complete the modules virtually and at your own pace, and if you like what you see why not check out our early career opportunities and join our TalentX community.
