Past Graduate Cadets
The Graduate Cadetship program commenced in 2003, with the position going to Multimedia Cartography graduate, Cam Botherway. Throughout the next 12 months, Cam continued to develop and hone his skills and understanding with various software, datasets, client consulting, and other industry practices.
"My time with Spatial Vision has been a demanding but invaluable challenge, providing me with strong foundations for a fast-tracked career. Whilst my friends and peers with the same degree have become specialists within narrow disciplines, the range and depth of project exposure has given me an understanding of the industry that cannot be matched anywhere else. Combined with access to the skills and experience of some of the best experts in the business, my own abilities as a highly skilled generalist have flourished. I could not have wished for a better start to my professional career." - Cam Botherway
Since this time, Spatial Vision has continued the annual cadetship program. Each cadet is contracted for twelve months. During their tenure, cadets are exposed to a range of aspects of the business and client projects. Each graduate undertakes their own research project which they design, run and present to the company.

"The whirlwind graduate year I spent with Spatial Vision plucked me out of post-Masters graduate life and threw me headfirst into the busy, fascinating world of the spatial industry. I was given the chance to work on a huge array of projects from cartography to large-scale consulting to REST API development. As a self-taught coder, I doubted I would be able to use those skills professionally, yet Spatial Vision not only encouraged me to pursue my interest in this area, but nurtured it. Now I go to work to make maps, write code and manage projects of my own – try explaining that to me when I was still at Uni."
Tom Hollands, SV Cadet for 2016
“The Spatial industry is vibrant with new ideas and engaging technologies. Spatial Vision sits at the apex of three distinct spatial fields of mapping analytics, enterprise and mobile applications and advisory services. This provides the inspiration and opportunity to explore the breadth work available which is very important for new entrants into the spatial industry. The graduate program exposed me to the full range of work across these teams allowing me to transition from a spatial analytics and mapping graduate into a software developer. The flexibility and inspiration afforded by this opportunity will act as the perfect platform to guide you into your ideal role within industry.”
Michael King, SV Cadet for 2015

It has allowed me the opportunity to work on a variety of different projects, taking the fundamental skills taught at university and applying them to real life scenarios. Spatial Vision is a friendly and encouraging environment to be part of especially as a young professional."
Anastasia Foulidis, SV Cadet for 2013
"The Spatial Vision cadetship was a very valuable and memorable experience transitioning from University into full time work. From day one I was working with experienced staff members on a variety of different projects, gaining new skills along the way. It was an exciting opportunity getting to build new relationships with clients and get a great insight into the geospatial industry. Working on my cadet project was exciting as I gained important project management and leadership skills. This is a fantastic program at a company which prides itself on innovation and has a very welcoming team of experienced professionals. I highly recommend the cadetship to anyone who thrives off of new challenges and is eager to learn many valuable geospatial skills."
