Graduate programs

Join Queensland's largest and most diverse organisation.

Queensland Government Graduates are part of something bigger — leading projects that make a real difference to the people of Queensland. Our award winning programs consistently rank in Australia's top 100 Most Popular Graduate Employers list.

As a graduate, you will:

  • be responsible for projects that influence Queensland's community
  • experience development opportunities to fast-track your progression into leadership
  • experience the variety of career pathways available by completing work rotations across 4000+ locations
  • flourish in a supportive work environment with flexible working conditions and competitive pay and benefits.

Available programs

You only need to complete the registration form once to be considered for all of our graduate programs with the exception of the Nursing and Midwifery graduate programs. To register for these programs, complete the separate form which is accessible below during the recruitment period.

Registrations for graduate programs are currently closed. Keep an eye out for the next round of programs opening at the beginning of March.

Entry-level positions

You will also be considered for entry-level vacancies in the Queensland Government once you have registered your interest on the Graduate Portal. These positions can arise at any time in the year.

While these positions are not associated with formal graduate programs, they provide additional opportunities for graduates to gain employment and career development in Queensland Government.
