    Employer Profile

    At the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, our work makes a real and impactful difference in the lives of Australia’s veterans and their families. Our clients are diverse, ranging from young children, through contemporary veterans of operations in places like Afghanistan, to war widows of First World War Servicemen. We meet them during some of their most difficult times, and are there to support their wellbeing throughout their lives.

     

    Each year, we select a small number of graduates and take a genuine interest in their development and success. In our program, you will be highly visible, work alongside and learn from decision makers. You will be challenged, and have the opportunity to immerse yourself across different parts of our business through three rotations. You will also participle in a one-week tour of one of our interstate offices, and have many opportunities for formal learning and development throughout the program.
