Building a capable and diverse workforce for our future

The Treasury’s purpose is to support and implement informed decisions on policies for the good of the Australian people, consistent with achieving strong, sustainable economic growth and fiscal settings.

The Treasury achieves this by providing advice, analysis and legislation to the Government that aims to support the effective management of the Australian economy.

Treasury graduates work on policy issues that matter — we provide advice and analysis that influences almost every sector of the economy, affecting all Australians. As a Treasury graduate, you will make a difference.

We are looking for capable and professional graduates to contribute to policy development in crucial areas such as financial services, fiscal policy, foreign investment, tax policy and structural reform to support growth in living standards.

Treasury offers a challenging and rewarding career for graduates. You will develop a diverse range of approaches to policy-making and experience Australia’s fast-paced policy and political environment.

As part of the program, you will have two 1-year rotations. Ahead of your final placement, you will have the opportunity to experience different areas of the department and contribute to the breadth of work that Treasury leads.

Our commitment is to prepare you for a successful career. You will have access to a comprehensive graduate development program that includes an orientation week, regular formal training sessions, seminars, small group coaching and activities.

Applications for the 2020 Graduate Development Program are now open. To find out more about the Treasury, we encourage you to read our latest Annual Report and Corporate Plan.
