Employee Profiles

Hear from our graduates

Stephanie, Taxation

‘My current role has involvement in all business areas of the department and enables cross government department collaboration on specific projects. I love the exposure to different business areas and government departments. I also enjoy collaborating with others, whether in my team or external, and coming up with a solution to a problem. I find great satisfaction in the start to finish process of: recognising a problem, collaborating with others to solve the problem and then presenting these solutions to management for implementation.’ 

Anne Marie, Data

‘Entering the graduate program was daunting but being assigned a program manager helped tremendously with transitioning into work at the ATO. The program is a great way to get a feel for the different areas of the ATO and learn where you fit best. My first rotation was in Enterprise Analytics, Smarter Data. A typical day would involve a stand-up meeting with the team where everyone updates on their work progress and problems they are having, followed by finding, gathering, interpreting and displaying data to other departments of the organisation.’

Anna, Human Resources

‘Being in a room with the other grads for three days at induction, we really started to bond with one another. It was comforting to know we were all going to be on the same journey together and I realised everyone in the room was probably as nervous as I was!’

James, Design 

‘Being part of the graduate program has allowed me to work on a broad range of challenging projects. Each has helped me to grow as a designer and has exposed me to opportunities where I can use my design skills in many different applications.’

Cheng, Taxation

‘My experience as a Taxation graduate in the ATO Graduate Program has been very rewarding. The highlight of the program for me has been the training and development opportunities provided through the year-long training program, milestone tasks and work rotations. I was already working at the ATO prior to starting the program, and the program has been a great opportunity to continue my professional and personal development.’

Jarrod, IT 

‘As a graduate forensics officer I assist in forensically processing and analysing digital evidence in our lab for legal and investigation clients. I have a Bachelor of Computer Science Degree but no legal background and am building my legal skills as part of my work. I’m excited to see what’s next in store with the forensics and investigations team’.

Liam, Marketing and Communication 

‘The ATO graduate program has provided me with career opportunities that would never have really occurred to me when I first applied. I have been able to build networks during the program that have shifted my career path towards content development and user-research. I now am working on validating improvements to our digital services, helping the ATO co-design with our most important users – everyday Australians.’

Danny, Taxation

‘The grad program helps to develop a combination of wide ranging and specialist skills. ATO's investment in its staff is notable and worthwhile: Bring your open mind, flexibility and commitment to the ATO where you can be rewarded with an exemplary public service career.’

 

Day in the Life - Design

Asavari Deonath

Design Graduate
Australian National University
Bachelor of Design (2018) / Bachelor of Science (Psychology) with Honours (2019)

7:15am
Today I’m working from home and start my morning by walking my very energetic Australian cattle dog, Mica.  After that, I have my breakfast and get ready for work. 

8:30am
I start my workday by entering the time I started on my timesheet. Mica decides to keep me company today and has a little nap beside my desk. I then check my Outlook calendar, emails, and MS Teams messages, and write a task list to prioritise my day and identify any meeting prep I need to do. On Mondays, I’ll also update Jira (the project management software we use at the ATO) with what I’ve completed in the past week, what I anticipate working on this week, and roughly how much of my work week I will spend for each project. 

australian taxation office

My working from home set up

9:30am
Time for my team stand-up. Stand-ups are usually a quick whip-around with your team mates to discuss what your priorities for the week are, and what you’ll be doing today. We usually also add if we’re under the pump, have time to help someone else out, or if we’re experiencing any difficulties with the work on, and some non-work-related chatter like what we’re watching or what we did over the weekend. 

10:30am
After I complete some of the items on my to do list, it’s time for a morning break. As I am working from home, I will usually go and give Mica the attention he’s been craving. 

10:45am
I get back onto my daily tasks. This usually involves PowerPoint and ranges from putting reports together, setting up reading and virtual collaboration tasks for workshops, visual communication and making infographics. My branch (ATO Design) has very enthusiastic, creative and reflective people in it, and we allow a little time for small fun things – today we share our scores on wordle and have a weekly drawing challenge to fill a post-it note with a creative response to a nominated theme.

12:30pm
Lunch time! I like to read in my backyard while eating, unless there’s a good show on – currently I’m watching the Winter Olympics.  

1:30pm
In ATO Design we work in engagements, where projects come to us for 1-6 months for various purposes, and we get put in teams of designers to see them through. As it varies depending on what the project needs, tasks can range from user research and interviews, co-design workshops and facilitation, preparing for and consolidating notes for either, visual communication, preparing documents, planning, and testing interventions. At the moment I’m working to make some recommendations for interventions to help more companies pay their annual review fee and update their contact details on time.

2pm
I attend a co-design workshop with frontline staff from the ATO and ASIC. I took notes on what was discussed straight onto the PowerPoint in which my team were screen-sharing. After this, we debriefed as a team what went well, what we would change, what progress we have made towards intended outcomes, and next steps. I usually have at least one day per week which is meeting free, and I also have a 20-minute one-on-one catch up with my managers, once or twice a week to discuss how I am tracking with my work, and any challenges I may be having. It’s a super helpful meeting and my managers are always willing to assist and give advice. 

3:15pm
Afternoon break time! It’s usually the same routine as the morning one, but with a little more stretching. 

3:30pm
My focus for the afternoon is on more creative and active work. It’s a great way for me to put my thinking cap on and send out what I am working on for feedback within my team. 

4:15pm
As it’s the last hour of the day, I like to focus on the most important thing to do before tomorrow’s tasks start. It might involve looking at what’s on tomorrow/the next day or back through my emails to ensure I am across all deadlines or finishing what I’m already working on. 

4:45pm
I save my work and put away any things I put on top of my desk during the day. Time to log off and take Mica for another much-needed walk – I told you he was energetic!

Year of Graduation: 2020

7:30 AM
I wake up around 7 AM and start my day with a hearty breakfast while watching the news. If the weather is nice like today, I’ll ride my bike into the office (otherwise I take the tram if it’s rainy). I park my bike in the basement parking area and shower at the end-of-trip facilities available at the office.

8:30 AM
I get to my desk around 8:30 AM, and spend some time catching up with my colleagues who I hadn’t seen in person for a couple of days (as I was working from home). I then begin my workday properly by checking my emails and calendar. Today there are only a few emails relating to Learning and Development, and some wider organisational updates and newsletters. I only have one major meeting today, and I don’t need to prepare anything.

9:00 AM
I log into my team’s virtual machine and check the results of the model I had sent to be trained overnight. I’m trying to develop a model to understand and classify the content of financial documents, based on deep-learning techniques in Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. I open the output files and check the predictions generated by the model. I then spend some time evaluating the results of the training and notice a few inconsistencies in the output. I proceed to write down a few fixes I’ll have to implement in the post-processing steps in the code.

10:30 AM
At 10:30 AM we have our daily team stand-up on Microsoft Teams. In this meeting we all go around the (virtual) table and update the team with our progress since yesterday, and if we have questions or are facing any blockers. This is a good opportunity for me to take a step back from the depths of the code and to put what I’m trying to achieve into perspective. It’s also a great chance to see if anyone else is facing similar problems.

10:45 AM
After the stand-up, I spend the remainder of the morning chasing the bugs I’d identified in the outputs throughout the code. This requires me to do a bit of Googling, running some small unit tests, and stepping through each fix one at a time.

12:30 PM
After a productive morning, I stop to have lunch. I really like spending time outdoors, so I often ask a couple of my colleagues to come have lunch in the park across the street from the office. This is a great chance to get some fresh air, chat about non-work-related stuff, and get a change of scenery before heading back inside for the afternoon.

1:15 PM
After lunch, I go back to chasing up the bugs in the code I’ve been working on. I have a brief call with my team leader to chat about a specific problem, and the best approach to tackle it. We discuss our potential options and end up settling on a particular method, which I then proceed to implement. After this, I send the script off to run in the background while I turn my attention to the next meeting.

2:30 PM
This afternoon we have a wider Data Science Community of Practice meeting, which takes place every month or so with the entire Data Science branch. These sessions are a great opportunity to hear about other projects going on at the ATO, which always has several interesting Data Science activities being carried out due to the sheer size and scope of the organisation. Today’s talk is about Time Series forecasting, which I find really interesting as I’m not exposed to this area in my normal work.

3:30 PM
After the Community of Practice session, I take a short coffee break with my colleagues to stretch our legs. We head to the café downstairs and chat about the meeting we just had, as well as our plans for the evening.

3:45 PM
After the much-needed caffeine boost, I check the results of the script I’d sent off to run earlier this afternoon. The bugs I’d identified earlier were happily all working now! This always gives me a great feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction, as well as a clear way to measure progress. Not every bug and feature can be resolved within a few hours, but the feeling you get when there is a breakthrough is always fantastic.

I spend the rest of my workday thinking about the next steps in the model development. I do a bit of research online as to the best practices relating to fine-tuning the model once the main training step is complete. I write some items in a To Do list for tomorrow – mostly relating to papers I want to read and specific ideas to research further.

4:45 PM
I log off from my computer and head back to the basement to pick up my bike. I then ride home listening to some music and get back home just after 5 PM.

Human Resources Graduate 
Bachelor of Business (2018) Griffith University

7.00 am
I always start my day with a coffee and breakfast! I’m working from home today and before logging on, I take time to make sure my cat Boris is settled so he isn’t jumping on my desk. 

8.00 am
Time to log in! As soon as I’m logged on, I check my Outlook, and MS Teams messages from other team members and other Grads I’ve connected with. I ensure my to-do list in OneNote has everything on it and I’m organised for the day. For any meetings I check who is attending, so I can learn any new names and their role - I find this helps get to know people in our virtual environment. 

I’m currently in my second rotation in the program, working in the Learning and Development (L&D) team. My first rotation was in the Workforce Management team where I learned the APS role classification levels, the structure of Job Family Architecture and how these are linked to each role’s Job Profile. 

I’ve really enjoyed the tasks and stretch assignments I’ve been given; it’s helped me build my expertise with exposure to strategic HR thinking. 

australian taxation office

My WFH set up

8.30 am
I have a quick daily team catch-up where we discuss our work and progress of assigned tasks. My manager also goes over new work that has come through the day before and priorities are arranged accordingly. We always take the time to check in on how everyone is going each day; it’s really strengthened our team’s connection while working from home. 

9.00 am
I start with my priority work and use our online system called Jira to update my project work. I’m working on the strategy for ATO’s licenced training provider, and I check on staff participation reports for each course for the week. 

9.30am
I attend a webinar for the Future of Work and prioritising Mental health. This is a key focus of the organisation to support staff through the pandemic and into the future.

10.30 am
I attend a meeting with a team in the Superannuation area that my team is supporting to design a training program to assist staff who deal with building their resilience and improving their capabilities to deal with challenging client interactions. 
Following this meeting, I send an email to all participants to summarise topics that were discussed, and action points for each. I also make sure our Jira board is updated with the progress.

12.30 pm
Lunch time! I make my lunch and make sure to take time away from my desk for 30 mins and get outside, if possible. 

1.00 pm
I attend the weekly Branch meeting led by our team Director, it’s great to hear what the other L&D teams are working on with other areas of the ATO including IT and Data, Law and Practice and our Client Engagement Branch. This meeting includes an update by our Graduate Programs team and its need for L&D support. This is a high demand area for our teams with over 300 graduates each year in streams across the ATO!

2.00 pm
I have a meeting with my Graduate Program manager in one week, so I take time today to work on a task for the program which is to write a ‘STAR’ (Situation, Task, Action and Result) example of what I have learned in this rotation. This example aims to help develop our skills for writing job applications and I focus on demonstrating an example of my current role in this rotation. I then have my team leader review it, so I make sure I’ve allowed enough time for her to complete the review before next week. I also review and update the progress of my goals in the ATO’s performance system ‘Compass’.

3.00 pm
I keep working through my projects and make sure I’m on top of my to-do list for the day. I read any new emails or articles that have been published in our internal news from the leadership or staff. Today there was an article about ‘taking care of your mental health while working from home’. I also check to see if I’ve received any articles or news from my membership with the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI). This free membership is one of the perks of being part of the Australian Government Graduate Program HR stream! 

5.00 pm
Time to log off for the day. I complete my timesheet and make sure I log out of all the work systems I let my team know that I’m heading off for the day and clear off my desk. Time to unwind for the day and give my cat Boris some attention. 

LGBTIQ+

We continue to support individuals who identify with disability or impairment, through employment, retention, and career development.

National Disability and Ally Network

We have an employee-led diversity National Disability and Ally network and Neurodiversity network of dedicated ATO employees who have an interest in issues affecting ATO employees with disability or impairment.

Gender Equality

Gender Equality diversity icon

We’re committed to achieve gender parity across all levels in our organisation. We recognise that to attract and retain the best talent, we need a senior leadership cohort to reflect the diversity of our workforce. 

We’ve set representation targets to achieve 50/50 gender representation at senior levels of the agency – and we are proud to say we have met those targets with female representation at the senior leadership level now approximately 50%.

The ATO continues to embed long term cultural change through innovative, flexible work practices and leadership to drive and sustain gender equality. We acknowledge that everyone has a role to play to create an inclusive workplace, where assumptions are questioned and barriers removed to ensure equitable outcomes, regardless of gender.

It is essential that we continue to strive beyond demographic targets and make sure we are creating an environment where everyone, men, women and people who are gender diverse, are able to bring their best to the ATO, can speak up and have equal access to opportunities in the workplace.

Find out what we’re doing to be a more diverse organisation.
