Is previous work experience or an internship in a similar role required?

No, work experience or vacation employment is not a mandatory requirement. Although, we are interested in finding out about your experience, what your interests are and what you would like to achieve.

Can I apply if I’m not an Australian citizen?

We are only able to offer graduate positions to Australian or New Zealand citizens or permanent residents. The Queensland Public Service Act 2008 provides the legislative basis for eligibility to work in the Queensland Government. This means that you need to have your residency status confirmed at the time of application.

What happens at the end of the graduate program?

At the end of the program, your new skills and knowledge of working at WorkCover Queensland means you will be well placed to seek and obtain an ongoing position. Throughout the program, we will help you develop your confidence and skills to obtain further employment opportunities with WorkCover Queensland or to help you pursue your career elsewhere. 

Will I work in the same role for the duration of the program?

No, you’ll have a fantastic opportunity to learn about different areas of WorkCover Queensland with four rotations during your two-year program. The program is focused on promoting skills development while giving you exposure to a wide variety of roles, environments and experiences.

How will my performance be appraised while I am on the program?

Receiving feedback on your performance is extremely important to your ongoing professional development. Each area you are placed with during your rotations will monitor your performance in line with their professional performance and review processes. This means you will work with your manager to write performance targets that are consistent with your own personal goals for growth and development, and the organisation's business direction.

Do you offer internships?

No, we do not offer internships.
