The Australian Public Service (APS) is not just a job. It’s a great career choice for a wide range of people, including graduates, people returning to the workforce or those looking for a career change.
The APS has a strong connection with all Australians. Being in the APS means you will be actively shaping this country and, as such, we must be reflective of the community we serve; we must work across borders and through barriers; we must always think of the future, and we must impartially serve the government of the day and, through it, all Australians.
Most Australians are eligible to work in the APS, which employs over 150,000 people across Australia and overseas—and it’s not as hard to get an APS job as you may think.
This guide will help you understand:
