Secondment program

The Treasury has an extensive secondment program that offers rewarding and challenging mobility opportunities. The program enables the temporary exchange of staff between the Treasury and other Australian and international organisations, private sector, academia and other agencies within the public service, including state and territory Treasury departments. Our secondment program builds organisational leadership and positive cultural change by connecting staff and exposing them to new ideas, alternative leadership styles, diverse approaches to policy-making and the challenges and practicalities of implementing policy decisions. Inbound secondees may be based in our offices across Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, generally for periods of 6 to 12 months.

Secondees remain employees of their home organisation and continue to receive their full salary and benefits. All assignment details, such as duration and duties to be performed, are negotiated between participating organisations and Treasury, and are included in a secondment agreement.
