2025 PM&C Graduate Program


Job Description:

PM&C's 12-month Graduate Program offers hands on experience through rotations (12-16 weeks at a time) across a range of business areas. You are in the driver’s seat to ‘choose your own adventure’ across policy areas, taskforces, corporate and governance teams. No one day is the same, the type of work you will do includes research, analysis, briefing, coordination, advice and support on policies and initiatives related to existing and emerging Government priorities.


You will be supported to rapidly develop the foundational skills, knowledge and networks needed to understand and contribute at PM&C and in the broader APS. This includes continued formal learning and networking both in your graduate group and beyond.


You will be part of experienced and motivated teams. You will have a mentor and workplace buddy, and work with visionary and experienced leaders who encourage and support you to achieve your career ambitions. Many of whom were graduates themselves.


The opportunity to push yourself out of your comfort zone, take on new challenges and launch (or relaunch) your career. No matter your academic and life background, we want your unique and fresh thinking to tackle meaningful and complex challenges so that we can deliver the best outcomes for all Australians. For more information, visit PM&C Graduate Program.


For information on areas available for rotation, visit PM&C Graduate Program.


PM&C employs graduates from a variety of academic disciplines with diverse experiences and backgrounds including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex people; Culturally and Linguistically Diverse people; and people with lived experience of disability.

  • Exciting and fulfilling work at the heart of government, contributing to improving the lives of all Australians, with career development and networking opportunities difficult to find elsewhere;
  • The opportunity to work with strong, smart, visionary and experienced leaders who encourage and support you to develop your interests and expertise and achieve your ambitions.
  • We embrace flexible working practices including working from home and specially designed offices to enable flexible working approaches through spaces designed to accommodate a range of working styles (whilst at all times adhering to social distancing principles and appropriate hygiene practices).PM&C staff apply flexibility and activity-based principles to work, allowing them to choose where and how they work in an open space, while using integrated technological solutions. This type of working supports increased communication and collaboration, and encourages agility and innovation.
