Application process

Complete your application online. We’ll ask you to provide your personal details, resume, answer ten multiple choice and one technical question and upload a copy of your most recent academic transcript.

Our application process will include a video interview and face to face interview to assess your suitability for a graduate role. If applying in the Data Graduate Stream and found suitable at interview stage, you will be asked for your preferences in agency placement and location. 

If successful, you will also be required to meet health, integrity and character clearances, and may need to acquire and maintain at least a baseline security clearance.

All suitable candidates will be advised by email and any offer will be made verbally. 

Whilst the formal program begins in February 2023, many graduates are given the opportunity to start as a non-ongoing or permanent employee earlier. Your availability to start early will have no bearing on your assessment of suitability.
