About DuluxGroup

  • Retail, Sales & Consumer Goods

With a rich history spanning over 100 years, we are the home of some of Australia and New Zealand’s most recognised and iconic brands, including Dulux, Selleys, Yates, B&D, and Cabot’s, to name a few. 

Our brands have been woven into the fabric of the communities in which we operate, helping our consumers to imagine and create better places and spaces in which to live and work. 
We employ a team of more than 4,000 people around the world, in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, China, the United Kingdom and France.

The DuluxGroup Difference

Here’s a sneak peek into what we offer our employees.

Learning and career development

We want our people to unleash their imaginations and imagine “what if?”. We support this through a range of targeted learning and development programs, as well as by offering genuine career pathways across our broad and diverse range of businesses and brands.

Caring for our communities and the environment

We encourage our people to play a role in their communities, including by offering a paid “Supporting Our Communities” action day each year. An embedded focus on safety and sustainability also drives us to deliver on our vision of "A Future Without Harm.”

Flexible Work

We understand that a “one size fits all” approach doesn’t work, and are committed to providing a flexible work environment that enables our people to manage their work, family and lifestyle responsibilities in their own unique way. It is part of what we do and who we are.

Our Values & Behaviours

We are united by a shared set of unique Values and Behaviours that underpin our high-performance culture and guide the way that we deliver our core purpose. Our values are:

  • Be consumer driven, customer focused
  • Unleash your imagination
  • Value people, work safely and respect the environment
  • Run the business as your own

Other Perks

  • Access our market-leading range of products at a discounted rate
  • The Employee Assistance Program is a free, voluntary and strictly confidential service for employees and their immediate families, which is available to support them through any personal or work matters that they might experience
  • Feel valued through our numerous Employee Reward and Recognition programs
  • Competitive remuneration packages and additional employee benefits, including an array of corporate partnerships and discounts
  • For parents, we offer a Parental Leave package of 12 weeks paid leave for the primary career

Recruitment Process

DuluxGroup’s Graduate Development Program is open year-round. You’ll need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident. You’ll also need to be prepared to work anywhere in Australia, as postings depend on the needs of the business.

Those from all disciplines are welcome to apply. However, you’ll have an advantage if you’ve got a degree in accounting, chemistry, mechanical engineering, marketing or IT. Being able to provide evidence of interpersonal communication and leadership skills, an innovative and creative mindset and ambition will also count in your favour.  

The process begins with an online application, which involves uploading a CV and cover letter. DuluxGroup’s standard recruitment stages are: online application; telephone interview; first-round interview; psychometric testing; work sample and presentation, second-round interview; reference checks; pre-employment medical and formal offer.

If your application is successful, you’ll undertake a tailored three-year Graduate Development program. Previous graduates have worked in areas such as engineering, finance, HR, IT, marketing, sales, supply chain and R&D. You can expect to work across business units, locations and functions relevant to your qualification and career aspirations.

You will participate in two development workshops every year and get plenty of opportunities to interact with senior management. You’ll be “exposed to a wide variety of challenging opportunities” given DuluxGroup operates “a large number of sites with different operating methods and challenges”. You’ll develop both your technical expertise and interpersonal skills and may be in a line-management role by your final year in the program.

Remuneration & Career Growth

As a DuluxGroup Graduate, you will be offered many opportunities across your three-year program. You may work across different functions, business units and sites. Twice a year you will come together to participate in development workshops, where you will learn:

  • Commercial skills
  • Project management
  • Effective communication and negotiation techniques
  • Presentation skills and much more

These are focused on building professional skills and leadership capabilities to help you build your career as a leader in our growing business, while also giving you exposure to networking opportunities with senior leaders. The role is demanding, challenging and rewarding.
