Orientation Week

We’re busy getting ready for you to start your Enterprise Services Graduate Program in February 2024 and we’re excited to announce it will begin with ‘GO Week’ at our Clayton campus in Melbourne!

GO Week will be held Monday 12 February to Thursday 15 February 2024.

Interstate graduates (not based in Victoria) will be flown to Melbourne and accommodation provided at the Parkroyal Monash in individual rooms. 

Melbourne-based graduates are also encouraged to stay at the Parkroyal Monash on Tuesday and Wednesday night as we have dinners planned for both nights.

All flights, accommodation, local transport, and meals will be provided as part of the program. 

The high-level GO Week schedule (12 – 15 February 2024):

  • Monday – Travel to Melbourne, arriving mid to late afternoon with transport to the Parkroyal Monash hotel provided. 
  • Tuesday and Wednesday – Big days! Orientation activities at the CSIRO Clayton site will include site and lab tours, professional development training sessions, CSIRO Leader panel discussions and many opportunities to get to know your fellow graduates and learn more about CSIRO.
  • Thursday – orientation activities and then travel home, departing Melbourne early afternoon. 

Further details on your travel arrangements and the detailed agenda will be shared with you closer to the time.
