The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources develops and implements policies and programmes to ensure Australia's agricultural, fisheries, food and forestry industries remain competitive, profitable and sustainable. We also support the sustainable and productive management and use of rivers and water resources.

We have about 5000 staff working in offices, airports, mail centres, shipping ports, laboratories and abattoirs. We’re located in regional centres, rural communities and capital cities. Each year we employ graduates from a broad range of disciplines, across areas of science, economics, forecasting, programme and policy implementation.

We are looking for enthusiastic graduates who have a passion for exciting and challenging work, are results oriented and understand the importance of what the department does.
