Working at the ABS

Working at the ABS

You can work in a range of challenging and rewarding office based permanent and temporary roles to drive real change. We are mostly known for conducting the Census and Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey. However, we do so much more, collecting and publishing information from tens of thousands of Australian households and businesses about all aspects of life to better understand our population and future needs. 

Results from our surveys are used by all levels of government, industry and community groups to make important decisions, such as how public funds are spent, and where services are needed. These decisions directly affect you, your family and the people you know. 

The variety of roles we offer include collecting, analysing and disseminating data, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), finance, human resources, customer services, and the list goes on. 

Our offices are located in all capital cities as well as Geelong.
