What's new!

AusIndustry has a range of different APS6 roles in Canberra on offer including Programme Management, Customer Relationship and Service Delivery, Senior Project, Technical and Data, and Industry Development...

We have changed the way we are recruiting to fill these roles. Our new recruitment program is titled 'Work Ready'. So we can assess suitability for our roles we ask people to tell us about their motivation and the skills and experience they will bring to a role in AusIndustry and the department, as well as some notable achievements. We no longer ask people to write to selection criteria but continue to use the elements of the Integrated Leadership System (ILS) as an assessment tool. We hope you will find the experience of applying for a role with us easy.

Check out more about AusIndustry programmes.


We encourage applications from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, persons with disability and people from other diverse backgrounds. We are committed to providing a working environment that values diversity and inclusion and supports employees to reach their full potential.

Our application process page will provide you with information and advice on how to apply for positions in our department.

General information on applying for an APS position can be found on the Australian Public Service Commission's website APSJobs, which includes the very useful "Cracking the Code" guidance.
