Indigenous Graduate Program

APS Indigenous Graduate Recruitment

One application - many opportunities. The Australian Government Indigenous Graduate Recruitment Program is your pathway to a rewarding career in the Australian Government.


Our program is a pathway for Indigenous graduates to enter the Australian Government. We recruit on behalf of up to 30 Australian Public Service and Commonwealth agencies.

Each agency is responsible for a different aspect of Australian life, from education, health and community services to defence, immigration and infrastructure….Wherever you are placed you will find opportunities to undertake challenging work and make a meaningful contribution to the Australian community.

With years of experience in providing excellent candidate care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, our team will support you through every step of the process.


As a graduate in the Australian Government, you will get hands-on experience along with formal development opportunities tailored to build your skills. This will give you a professional advantage in the increasingly competitive workforce, wherever your career may take you.

Typically, graduates undertake a structured program over 12 to 24 months which comprises:

  • work rotations designed to expose you to business areas across the agency
  • opportunities to undertake a diverse range of real work
  • on the job and formal training to help you establish your professional grounding
  • opportunities to build professional networks
