JBS Professional Development Strategy and Implementation (2009 – 2012)


Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) is dedicated to ensuring the Australian red meat industry remains competitive, sustainable and profitable in both national and international marketplaces. In order to achieve this goal it is essential that the professional capability of the industry be continually improved and expanded.

The Graduate Program, which formed part of the Red Meat Industry Professional Development Program, has been developed by MLA to increase the professionalism and innovative capacity of both individuals and companies within the red meat sector.

The Graduate program is a long term commitment by a company to the development and encouragement of young professionals into the red meat industry. The Graduate Program is a three year program designed to assist companies in engaging, developing and retaining university graduates. The aim of the program is to provide each graduate with a broad exposure to the red meat industry, in addition to gaining specialist skills and training which will enable them to develop their career in the industry.


The project focused on delivering a strategic program within JBS for introducing professionals to the industry and simultaneously developing their specific meat professional skills.

The program provided graduates with the required support infrastructure to develop their own professional strengths and work ethics during their first few years in employment and deliver the outcomes expected of them. This contract provided the required human and systems resource to develop, implement, deliver, and evaluate a whole of company (JBS Australia) professional development program.
