Previous employees in the public sector graduate program meet Commissioner Sharyn O'Neill

You’ll be seeing more of these friendly faces in the coming months after today's launch of the 2023 A place of opportunity campaign.

These talented and passionate young people are (or have been) employees of WA public sector graduate programs and are the faces of this year’s promotion.

We invited them to our office last Thursday to meet the Public Sector Commissioner, Sharyn O’Neill, and have a chat about how they are contributing to the WA community through their work.

And from today they are telling their story – the department they work in, what they do there and why they love their roles.

Each video story provides an insight into the diversity of opportunities available in the public sector, and the wide range of skills and qualifications we need in the WA public sector.

And this year we are planning to have exhibits at lots of university events and careers expos.

We’ll be at Curtin’s O-Day this Wednesday 22 February, and at UWA’s O-Day on Friday 24 February.

Future events include the Careers Expo in May and the Skills Expo in July.

In 2023 we have more than 25 graduate and cadetship programs on offer for uni grads who want to make a difference.
