Treasury Graduate Program

Invest in your future

The Treasury Graduate Program offers recent university graduates the opportunity to join Australia’s leading economic policy adviser. Our program offers comprehensive training, development and mentorship from skilled professionals, who will work with you to develop your skills, knowledge and confidence.

“Treasury wants capable and enthusiastic professionals to help develop and deliver sound economic policy. I believe that Treasury offers rewarding and challenging opportunities – and the chance to develop personally and professionally. The Treasury experience is keenly sought after. There is the opportunity for a long term career in Treasury – or to work with us for a few years as part of a broader career path in either the public or private sector.”

John A. Fraser, Secretary to the Treasury

The Treasury serves the Australian people by helping the Australian Government’s Treasury Ministers carry out their responsibilities. The Treasury’s three priorities are: promoting fiscal sustainability; increasing productivity and workforce participation; and securing the benefits of global economic integration.

Treasury is best known for producing the Australian Government’s annual budget, but we do much more than that. We also work to strengthen Australia by developing key policies on: tax and the economy; financial, foreign investment, competition, social and broader structural policy.

We’re looking for tomorrow’s capable and professional leaders to drive policy development and make a positive contribution to raising the living standards of all Australians.

Our commitment is to enrich you professionally and prepare you for a successful public or private sector career.

Applications for the 2017 Graduate Program closed on 1 May 2016. To find out more about the Treasury, we encourage you to read our latest Annual Report and Corporate Plan.
