Want to help create healthy, safe and productive working lives for all Australians?

Become a graduate at Safe Work Australia—we’re a small agency with a big agenda. Located in the iconic Nishi building in Canberra, we develop national policy for work health and safety (WHS) and workers’ compensation in Australia. We are the collector and keeper of national WHS and workers’ compensation data and drive change to improve WHS and workers’ compensation outcomes.

Our graduate program

We’re a small agency, so you’ll get hands-on, real experience, working in a variety of teams.
You'll contribute to meaningful work from day one and have the opportunity to make your mark. We’ll also support your learning and development with plenty of opportunities to refine and build on your skills.

Here are a few things we offer:

  • ongoing employment once you complete the graduate program
  • generous remuneration package and employment conditions
  • access to a range of health and wellbeing initiatives
  • high quality professional development activities
  • a mentoring program, and
  • relocation assistance if you live outside of Canberra.

Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for graduates who stand out from the crowd. We want talented and motivated graduates who have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, drive and the enthusiasm to learn and contribute to Australians’ health and safety at work.

If you’re keen to help us make a difference, we’ll be recruiting graduates for our 2021 graduate program in late 2020.

Applications for our 2020 graduate program have closed.
