Text Size a a a Print Print this page

The Department requires people with a wide range of experience and is particularly interested in recent university graduates who enjoy working in a team environment, can adapt quickly to change and have excellent communication skills, initiative and determination. As future leaders in the public sector, passion, commitment and a thirst for knowledge are essential.

You don't need a specific academic background as long as you can demonstrate academic achievements, have an interest in issues that affect the community of Western Australia, and want to think, talk and write about how Government might solve some challenges. You will need to be a good communicator who thinks clearly and is not scared of putting up original ideas. You will need to understand that there are rules and processes around what we do in the public sector but be willing to ask why.

To be eligible for the program, applicants must be an Australian Citizen, Permanent Resident or be entitled to live and work indefinitely in Australia.

Applications are invited from all university graduates who have completed a degree of 3 years or more in 2015 or will be completing their degree in 2016.

You should have achieved consistently high academic results, might have some limited work experience, be an excellent verbal communicator, and have strong analytical and problem solving skills.

The Department of the Premier and Cabinet is an equal opportunity employer. We embrace diversity and encourage applications from a diverse field, including Indigenous Australians, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, youth, and people with disability which is supported by our Workforce and Diversity Plan 2015-2017.
