Victorian Government- a partnership between DELWP and DJPR

The Science Graduate Program (including Planners) - Victorian State Government, is a program across two government departments. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and The Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR).

The majority of roles within the program have shown interest in receiving Aboriginal candidate applications. The specific position outlined below has identified an Aboriginal candidate is preferred.

Our two-year training and development program provides graduates with a mix of field and policy work, exposure to research and, where appropriate, community engagement activities.

It offers roles to recent graduates of science, natural resource management, agriculture, ecology, conservation, planning or related fields.

Graduates undertake three 8 month rotations in a variety of locations around Victoria - including regional placements.

Every year, we recruit graduates in different areas depending on the department’s organisational needs and current government policy.
