Treasury offers a number of student and graduate opportunities from graduate and vacation program employment to professional placements for academic credit.
These exceptional opportunities allow students and graduates from a diverse range of disciplines to launch their career in the public sector and contribute to shaping and influencing government decisions. They also actively contribute to the State’s economy, budget and community whilst working on high profile State projects and are encouraged to build and maintain their professional networks.
Our 2019 Graduate co-hort have just embarked on their third rotation placement across the business. The Department also recently welcomed a talented and diverse cohort from across Australia who are part of the Treasury 2020 Graduate Program and 2020 Summer Vacation Programs. Some testimonials are provided below:
“As a Treasury graduate, I have had the opportunity to work across multiple business units within Treasury, develop a broad range of skills and make meaningful contributions to government decision making. Treasury encourages and supports its graduates to undertake challenging work and engage with all levels of staff within the business and across the public sector. I would highly recommend the Treasury Graduate Program to anyone interested in making a meaningful contribution while developing the skills to succeed in their career.” – Matthew Keohane, 2019 Treasury Graduate.
“The internship has provided me the opportunity to see first-hand how the concepts taught at university relate to the decisions made by Government. I have been given the opportunity to be involved in important projects and contribute in a meaningful way. It has been inspiring to work with people who are passionate about improving the welfare of our community through their work at Treasury. I highly recommend this program to all students” - Chantelle Gregory, 2020 Summer Intern.
