Digital graduates for agencies
Expressions of interest for the 2024 intake are now closed.
From April 2024, we will seek agency interest for the 2025 intake.
For Queensland Government to be leaders in agile and innovative digital solutions for Queenslanders, we need digital skills in analytics, design, user experience, security, programming, and system evaluation.
You need to ensure your team has the right skills to meet current and future workforce needs. The Digital Graduate Program can build your team’s capability and knowledge to support digital shifts.
All Queensland Government departments, statutory authorities and Government Owned Companies are invited to participate.
Recruiting a graduate
For a one-off fee of $6,000 + GST per graduate, this award-winning program (ranked 54 in the Australian Association of Graduate Employers AAGE 2023 Top 75 most popular Graduate Employers of Australia) offers complete program administration including assessing high-calibre candidates, training, and ongoing support.
Successful graduates are appointed by you at an AO3 level (or equivalent) on a 2-year temporary contract. We have a wide variety of graduate roles to choose from.
We provide each graduate with support, networking opportunities and professional development to give them the tools and confidence to bridge the transition from graduate to digital professional and leader.
The Digital Graduate Program provides graduates with an opportunity to enter a leadership program and jumpstart their careers. We retain 87% of participants who establish their careers in the sector, filling critical roles that are usually hard to fill and retain.
You will be assured of:
- a professionally managed and cutting-edge recruitment process
- initial screening of candidates
- a nationally recognised leadership development program
- ongoing program administration and support for agencies and graduates
- continuous improvement of the program based on feedback from departments.
Former employers of digital graduates relate their impressions of the program:
"I was really pleased to hear Matt say that he was enjoying being in the team and that he felt like he was engaged in meaningful activities. What was even better was the great feedback the rest of the team provided him, with comments like 'he just jumps in and helps' and 'he’s pretty much on top of everything!'
Safe to say, he’s a real self-starter, a great communicator, willing to have a go and learn, and has developed a good rapport with the team in a very short space of time.
I can’t help but think we’ve been lucky with our grads, but have to put it down to a great program and good hiring. Keep up the great work!
