2018 Graduate Development Program: Open for application

Sixteen of the best and brightest university graduates will have the opportunity to bring their diverse skills to the Tasmanian State Service next year as part of the 2018 Graduate Development Program.

Launched last year by the Tasmanian Liberal Government, the two-year program will help graduates develop a rewarding career in the state service.

Graduates will get hands on project experience across six agencies - including the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Department of State Growth and Department of Justice, as well as responsibilities and exposure to diverse work and complex environments.

The state service recognises that success in the workplace requires more than just academic results, so they are looking for graduates with confidence, enthusiasm, problem-solving and great communication skills.

It’s important to highlight that these positions are not only for recent university graduates but those with work or volunteer experience, with last year’s graduate group ranging in age from early 20’s to mid-40's and representing diverse work backgrounds from architecture, to commerce and social science.

The Graduate Development Program supports the State Service Workforce Diversity and Inclusion Framework principles and encourages people from all backgrounds to apply.

Applications open on Thursday, October 12, for roles commencing in January/February 2018.
