About Government

The Australian Public Service (APS) is one of Australia’s largest employers, with over 160,000 employees spread across 120 organisations both in Australia and overseas. While many central offices are located in Canberra, 60 per cent of jobs in the APS are found outside the nation’s capital.

That means the public sector in Australia represents a large and attractive pool of employment opportunities – not only for their sheer number, but for the many perks they offer. Government employment provides competitive salaries, generous super entitlements, flexible work practices, excellent leave conditions, long service leave for eligible employees and a diverse workforce, with equal employment opportunities for women, Indigenous Australians and those with disabilities. That’s a whole lot of reasons to want to work for the Australian government.

Potential government career outcomes include: Policy Analyst, Policy and Planning Manager, Inspector, Organisation Analyst, Regulatory Officer, Records Manager.
