2022 Graduate Development Program - Affirmative Measure Disability

When you work with us, you are part of a diverse and dynamic workforce dedicated to keeping Australia prosperous, secure and united. We offer our graduates a range of interesting opportunities and unique experiences.

Australia prospers significantly from being open, engaged and connected to the rest of the world. Whether it is through the movement of people, goods, or financial assets, our engagement with the world creates tremendous opportunities for individuals and Australia’s collective prosperity.

Through our contribution to world-class trade and migration programs, protecting the Australian border, community, financial sector or critical infrastructure, or other national security activities - our ultimate mission is to ensure an Australia that is prosperous, secure and united.

About the Opportunity

We want people from diverse backgrounds who can problem solve complex issues, think critically, have good judgement and decision making skills, excellent written and verbal communication skills and who want to participate in a culture that values diversity, respect and inclusion.

At Home Affairs your career is not limited by your degree. You have been equipped with a wealth of transferable skills that can be utilised across all facets of the department.

Our graduate program offers professional development, excellent employment conditions, relocation assistance, support of various diversity networks, rewarding professional relationships, mentors and buddies as well as endless career opportunities.

Our core foundations of success are built on respect, acceptance, understanding and equal opportunity to promote the attraction, retention and development of people with disability.

This allows us to reinforce our commitment to working with you to build a successful career; one that continually provides ongoing access to support, active career management and professional development opportunities to maximise progression and potential.

We are committed to building and valuing a diverse workforce that represents the community we serve.

A workforce that fosters inclusiveness and embraces the diversity of its people, such as differences in cultural backgrounds, race, ethnicity, disability, age, gender identity or sexual orientation.

We support our staff by realising their full potential through removing employment-related disadvantages and barriers to participation.

We strive to ensure the following initiatives and support are always accessible to our staff with disability:

  • access to our Focus on Ability Network; Culture, Diversity and Inclusion Section; and Disability Champions who advance disability and accessibility initiatives
