Working with Us

Department of Industry, Innovation and Science

The Australian Government’s vision is for an agile economy, capitalising on Australia’s commercial and scientific strengths. Central to this vision is the need for strong, self-reliant and innovative businesses.

The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science as part of the portfolio for Jobs and Innovation, works collaboratively with the Department of Jobs and Small Business to deliver on the Government’s commitment of more jobs, more investment and stronger economic growth.

Our vision is to enable growth and productivity for globally competitive industries. To help realise this vision, the department has four key objectives: supporting science and commercialisation, growing business investment and improving business capability, streamlining regulation and building a high performance organisation.

The department contributes to this vision by facilitating the growth and productivity of globally competitive industries.

We also support the building of: strong scientific capability, technology, engineering and mathematics skills and science literacy as critical requirements for productivity and economic growth.

We support Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion is more than just an idea or a goal. Embracing diversity and inclusion is about valuing individual differences, removing barriers and creating an environment where all our abilities and experiences can be used to their fullest. Doing so, supports innovation and the development and achievement of business outcomes – and contributes to building a high performance organisation. We believe that an inclusive culture allows us to leverage the full potential of all our people. A culture that embraces individual differences in all its forms will enable us to do this. Inclusion must be a part of who we are – there is no end to this pursuit. It simply makes good business sense.

Applications are encouraged from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, people with a disability, the LGBTIQ+ community and people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
