2022 Graduate Development Program applications are open from 9 March 2021 and close 27 April 2021. Apply here!

We're looking for fresh-thinking, innovative and high-performing Graduates to contribute to shaping the future of Australia's infrastructure, transport, regional development, communications and creative industries.

We're at the forefront of the Australian Government's efforts to connect our communities, secure the nation's economic future, improve living standards, provide access to high quality communication services and ensure all Australians can enjoy diverse artistic and cultural experiences.

We do this by building stronger communities through major infrastructure planning, investment advice and delivery, transport system reform and strategic development of policies and programs.

We also set the course for Australia's digital future, encourage participation and excellence in arts and culture, and work on policy that supports and protects our cultural heritage.

During the Graduate year, we run a Major Research Project where graduates are tasked with a topic by our Executive and have the opportunity to research, analyse, prepare a report and may undertake “field-work” to support their final assessment.

If you are seeking a career where you can make a difference in the lives of everyday Australians, you will find it at Infrastructure!

Apply now!

Applications to apply directly with the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications will be open from 9 March 2021 and close 27 April 2021.
