Benefits and Support

Department of the Treasury

Treasury prides itself on its support for graduates to perform at their best – this is an important feature of the program. Each graduate is put in contact with a Treasury buddy prior to starting, and all Treasury staff have access to mentors to support them during their career at Treasury.

Beyond the program, Treasury provides ongoing support and training for staff to develop the skills and knowledge that will help advance their career. We offer in-house courses related to a range of different capabilities such as management, leadership, writing, presentation, communication skills, policy skills and culture. Treasury also provides opportunities for further study.

As a Treasury graduate you will commence as an APS 3.2 ($63,259 base salary per annum plus 15.4 per cent superannuation). Over the course of the program, subject to performance, you will progress through the APS 4.1 and APS 4.2 levels and be on track to be promoted to the APS 5 level through an open merit-based promotion round.

Treasury graduates may also access the following additional benefits:

  • Relocation allowance if moving from interstate.
  • 20 days annual leave plus a closedown period between Christmas and New Year.
  • Flexible working arrangements.
  • Health and wellbeing program.
  • Onsite childcare and carers room.
