- a competitive salary
- flexible working arrangements
- career opportunities within the department and our agencies
- access to ongoing professional development including structured learning and development opportunities.
The department’s graduate program has three streams. When you apply, you can nominate a specific stream based on your preferred location, study discipline and career pathway.
Professional services graduates are located in our Melbourne offices and come from a range of academic disciplines, which are most often related to justice and regulation policy, programs and corporate services. We welcome applications from graduates from all disciplines.
