“I am Treasury’s first Indigenous Australian Government Development Program (IAGDP) employee. I have been encouraged to contribute a range of diverse ideas, fresh thinking, energy and perspectives within Corporate Group. Since commencing in mid-2016, I have been given extensive responsibility for Treasury’s Learning & Development and Employee Relations functions. More recently I have been involved in Talent Sourcing and the Treasury Graduate Program. The Treasury continues to support me studying for a Diploma in Government and Diploma in Human Resources.”

“I highly recommend considering a career at Treasury to Indigenous Australians. Treasury may not be the first department you think about working at, but it’s a very friendly and welcoming place. Being a central agency and relatively small means you get to quickly learn about how government operates and get firsthand experience in the work Treasury does and see the impact it has on our community.”
