"The SuperGrads program provided us with a great range of quality candidates - people who might never have considered the superannuation industry as a career option. The program has provided our chosen candidate with a broad understanding of our sector and the industry, and I would recommend it to others."
Leeanne Turner, CEO MTAA Super
