The Department of Industry, Science and Resources and our broader portfolio are integral to the Australian Government’s economic agenda.

The Graduate Development Program is a structured 12-month program for those who have graduated university and completed a minimum of a three-year undergraduate degree within the past 5 years. Graduates begin the program working full-time at the APS4 level, undertake 3 rotations across different divisions/business areas and participate in several learning and development activities. Following the successful completion of the program, Graduates advance to the APS5 level.

The Department of Industry, Science and Resources Graduate Development Program gives you an opportunity to grow the skills you’ve gained during university through work that directly impacts the Australian community.

We are many policy areas, industries and careers rolled into one department. Our breadth of work offers endless pathways to grow your career, skills and experience.
