As a Graduate with Health, you will have the opportunity to assist in developing and implementing policies and
programs across a vast range of issues. You will contribute ideas and learn new skills in an environment which draws upon diversity and fosters innovation and high performance. Your work will affect the lives of all Australians.

The department welcomes applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and offers an Indigenous Affirmative Measure recruitment process. This process provides a valuable opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to use their knowledge, insights and capabilities to contribute to important work which impacts all Australians.

At Health, Graduates are empowered to achieve their full potential in the workplace through our ten (10) month Graduate Program that provides:

  • A comprehensive induction to the Graduate Program and Department of Health
  • Three (3) diverse placements across the Department.
  • On-the-job work experience and structured learning and development activities to challenge and develop your capability and guide you in becoming valuable Australian Public Servants.
  • An inclusive, flexible and healthy workplace with generous leave conditions and a competitive salary. 
  • Various networking and mentoring opportunities, including opportunities to be involved in the department's National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Staff Network 
  • Access to cultural leave to participate in ceremonial activities and other cultural obligations, including participation in NAIDOC week activities. 

Following successful completion of the Graduate Program, additional study leave provisions are also available for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander staff.

Our ideal graduate is a collaborative communicator, an analytical thinker with an inquisitive mind that seeks out learning and innovation opportunities. You will value the diverse views, experiences and perspectives of others and how this will contribute to strengthening our workforce. We need adaptable, resilient people who are not afraid to tackle complex but rewarding issues.
