Treasury Graduate Program

How to apply

Applications for the Treasury Graduate Program open in March each year.

The Treasury selection process consists of only a few steps:

1. Application

Applications must be submitted through the Department’s online recruitment portal before applications close at 11.30pm AEST, Monday, 1 May 2017.

Your application must include your:

  • resume and academic transcripts; and
  • a brief statement (up to 750 words) in support of your application, which explains why you wish to work at Treasury and how your skills are suitable.

You will be sent an email confirmation once you lodge your online application.

2. Shortlisting

Panel members assess applications during May/June each year. While not part of the selection process, shortlisted candidates will have the opportunity to meet with senior Treasury officers prior to their interview to gain insights into what a career at Treasury has to offer.

3. Interview

Interviews are held in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide each year. Telephone or Skype interviews, or other requirements for people with special needs can be arranged. Interviews are conducted in June/July each year.

4. Selection

Selection is based on your application, qualification(s), experience and performance at interview. An order of merit will be created.

5. Referee Checks

Referee checks are undertaken for candidates in strong contention following interview.

6. Offers

It is anticipated that the successful candidates will be sent a letter of offer for the Graduate Program in July each year. Subsequent offers may be made up until November.
