Data graduates at the ABS

The ABS is participating in the Australian Government Graduate Program (AGGP) – Data stream. The AGGP is a whole-of-Government program that lets you apply for one stream and have access to multiple Australian Government and Commonwealth agencies. You no longer need to submit multiple job applications. You could work at the ABS if found suitable in your application for the AGGP Data stream.

Applications for the 2024 Australian Government Graduate Program (AGGP) – Data stream have now closed. Recruitment for the 2025 program will open in March 2024. To keep up to date with information regarding graduate positions, please submit your details to the ABS Graduate Register.

At the ABS we look for people who share our dedication to bringing data to life and telling the stories of Australia and its people. As a Data Graduate at the ABS, you will join our network of Graduates for the ABS Graduate Development Program.  Data Graduates at the ABS are provided the opportunity to work with a diverse range of data sets including population, health, crime, and mortality data. You will work collaboratively with a team of professionals and have the opportunity to produce high quality statistics, and learn about relevant concepts, classifications, frameworks, and methods.

Data graduates at the ABS can be provided the opportunity to work in a range of divisions, such as methodology, data strategy and integration and data acquisition. These divisions manage real-time, real-world data and create integrated data series that enable economic surveys, progress the collection and processing of data insights and develop new data sources and methodologies.
