How it works

Participating departments

There are 8 departments in the Victorian Government. They all do interesting and amazing things.

They all have various agencies and entities attached to them, and some of our graduate positions are in these agencies.

It’s important that you consider the various departments available to you. Our graduates are offered an ongoing position in a home department. This is where you will do your first rotation and where you return at the end of the graduate year.

If you’re applying in the generalist stream will be asked to indicate your first and second preference of the department you want to work for.
