The Graduate Development Program is a 12-month program designed to give graduates various opportunities and foundations to develop their skills, knowledge, and understanding of the work of the department and wider Australian Public Service (APS). The Program operates in six streams including Generalist, Veterinarian, Finance Legal, Human Resources and ABARES (Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences)

You will be supported by a dedicated Entry Programs team and will have access to diversity and inclusion networks, past graduates (buddies), and a whole of government grad networks to help build your career in the APS.

If offered a graduate role you will enter the APS 3 classification. Upon successful completion of all components of the program, graduate capabilities will be assessed to determine suitability to advance to the APS 4.3 or APS 5 classification.

Additionally, we are a participating agency in the Human Resources, Data and Digital Australian Government Graduate Program streams. We are also recruiting for a range of disciplines through the Indigenous Graduate Pathway.

Applying to one of these streams means you only have to go through the application and selection process once to be considered for a range of Australian Government agencies we may also use applications to fill graduate positions in our other agencies, including the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA). This recruitment may also be used to fill roles for other portfolio agencies.

Graduates will get the opportunity to participate in workplace rotations and/or other on-the-job learning experiences whilst participating in the Graduate Development Program. These rotations and on the-job-learning provide the opportunity to gain experience across the department's business and in a variety of roles. "
