I'm thinking of joining the Australian Public Service

Where do I find more information about the different Agencies?

You may find that many departments and agencies do the type of work you are interested in – this will definitely be the case if you are interested in Information Technology, Human Resources, Intelligence, Public Policy or Public Administration.

The Australian Government website provides a list of departments and agencies and direct links to their websites.

You may then want to research the specific departments or agencies to find out more about what they have to offer. Search their website for information such as the:

  • Annual Report – this outlines the activities of the department or agency over the past 12 months
  • Enterprise Agreement – this outlines the conditions of service of employees in the department or agency
  • Strategic or Corporate Plan – this outlines their priorities, values and directions
  • Diversity Plan – this outlines the actions they are undertaking to make their department or agency accessible and inclusive.

You may also want to set up an information interview to find out more.
