ACMA Graduate Program 2022

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) works to maximise the economic and social benefits of communications and media for Australia. We do this by fostering a communications and media environment that balances the needs of industry and the Australian community through regulation, education and advice.

We provide consumer and audience safeguards; undertake compliance monitoring, investigations and enforcement; manage Australia’s spectrum and respond to changes in our environment by promoting fit-for-purpose regulatory frameworks. 
By engaging with consumers, industry and government to shape and apply the regulatory framework in the public interest, we encourage and promote an innovative communications and media sector. This work underpins our vision: a connected, informed, entertained Australia.

Our work is diverse and dynamic. You may find yourself working in a team to investigate complaints about radio and TV programs or investigating telecommunication companies who don’t do the right thing. You could work to limit harmful activities online such as gambling, protect Australians from scams and spam, or help shape our future working in our spectrum areas. We also work closely with the eSafety Commissioner, which could see you helping safeguard Australians at risk from online harm.

Our graduate program is designed to introduce recent university graduates to the ACMA. You’ll be immersed in meaningful work during your placements and receive training and support to develop your skills, knowledge and experience. You are welcome to review the major project the 2020 cohort developed and was nominated to present at the Graduation Ceremony.
