The Generalist Stream accepts graduates from a range of degree disciplines. These include public policy, arts, sciences, humanities, law, international relations, media, communications, design, accounting, finance, etc.
Being part of a Generalist Stream Graduate Program, you have the opportunity to work on contemporary policy, programs and services that make a real difference to the lives of Australians.
We are looking for people who are adaptable, positive, and willing to learn and innovate. The Australian Government offers challenges in a flexible and fast-paced environment and seeks people who are keen to serve the public interest.
As a Generalist stream graduate, you will join a highly regarded graduate program at one of the many participating Australian Government agencies. Each agency coordinates their own graduate program, with its own unique features.
Typically, the graduate programs will consist of 2-3 work rotations, formal targeted training and development opportunities, networking across the agency, support from dedicated supervisors and buddies/mentors. In most cases, at the successful completion of the graduate program, you will be advanced to the next higher classification.
