The Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC) offers an exciting and challenging Graduate Development Program with a focus on promoting your personal learning, developing your career and giving you a chance to make a difference in Western Australia. We provide passionate and committed graduates with the skills and experience they need to be future leaders in the public sector.

At the centre of Government in Western Australia, the Department of the Premier and Cabinet gives you a chance to work on big and small, critical and contentious issues relating to the economy, transport, education, health, the environment, and law and order - just to name a few. Graduates have worked on topics including the National Disability Insurance Scheme, the State Science Strategy, a special inquiry into the January 2016 Waroona Fire, and the Dirk Hartog anniversary celebrations in Shark Bay.  In 2016, our Graduates have worked on the development of the Square Kilometre Array science project, the South West Native Title settlement, and public consultations concerning the Government's approach for dealing with future population growth in Perth and the Peel region.

As a Graduate Development Officer you will work with senior officers and meet with people from other government agencies, the community and private sector companies, as they try to shape the development of answers to public policy problems across the State. 

Applications for the 2017 Graduate Development Program are now open and will close at 4pm Thursday 25 August 2016. An information session will be held on Thursday 18 August at 5pm. Find out more on the WA Government Jobs Board
