We need graduates with diverse skills, expertise, perspectives and experience to help us solve some of our country’s most pressing challenges.

You can join us by applying through:

  • our Graduate Development Program
  • the Australian Government Graduate Program STEM stream.

Graduate Development Program

Our Graduate Development Program gives you an opportunity to build and embed the skills you have gained during university through work that directly benefits Australians.

We accept all disciplines of study and have many opportunities available to use your skills, knowledge and experience. We value people who have strong communication, teamwork, research and analysis skills, who are adaptable and show initiative and judgment.

Australian Government Graduate Program STEM Stream

Our department leads the recruitment process for the Australian Government Graduate Program science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) stream. 

This opportunity is open to graduates who have completed a degree in a STEM field within the last 5 years. Graduates in this stream will have the opportunity to work in our department or one of the other participating Australian Government departments and agencies.
