    “The most pleasantly surprising aspect of the Treasury graduate programme for me has been the responsibility given to graduates early on. Enabled by the flat structure of the organisation, graduates are given challenging work from the get go, and thrown into major policy issues. This has given me the opportunity to truly contribute to the work of the organisation, and made me feel like a valued team member.” 
     - Hannah, 2014 Graduate

     “The most satisfying aspect of the Treasury’s Graduate Programme is the opportunity to embark on an unparalleled journey of knowledge, drawing upon your skills, challenging your perceptions, entering new domains of learning, all while making a real difference to the lives of everyday Australians.”
     - Hussain, 2014 Graduate

    “The graduate rotations provide an opportunity to experience the diverse range of work available in Treasury and develop different sets of skills. The six-month rotations also allow enough time for graduates to develop a strong understanding of a particular area and make meaningful contributions to the work of their teams.”
    Isobel, 2014 Graduate
