About Subaru

Subaru is focussed on removing obstacles for customers choosing, buying and owning a Subaru. It's what we 'do'. We live by the values of imagination, spirit and quality.

· The imagination to create change and 'do' things differently.

· An independent can 'do' spirit that heroes drive and enthusiasm.

· And quality that underpins everything we 'do'.

It's how we help Australians do more and get more out of life. Most importantly, it's not what we say we 'do', but what we 'do' that really matters.

Overview of Program

The Subaru Graduate Program is part of the Inchcape Automotive Graduate Program which has many different streams. The Subaru stream is a 3 year full-time Graduate rotation Program commencing in December 2017 or January 2018.

Phase 1: During your first rotation, you will gain experience across all parts of the Subaru business, including Sales, Aftersales, Marketing, Logistics, and Operations, amongst other departments.
