Finance Graduate Program

​​​​​​Treasury recruits graduates who have completed a university degree that enables the applicant to complete the Certified Practising Accountant (CPA) program or the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) postgraduate program.

What is the finance graduate program?

The finance graduate program offers an excellent opportunity to work and gain experience while studying professional accounting qualifications. Graduates receive study leave to attend tutorials and complete examinations, and payment of professional accounting course fees. Graduates also have access to a mentor who has completed the same qualification who can assist with any study issues and provide support and guidance throughout the program.

Whilst participating in the finance graduate program, graduates are exposed to areas of economic and financial management and public policy. Graduates will be placed within branches of the Budget and Finance Division for periods of up to 18 months over a three year period. Read about our finance graduates on the Staff Insights page.​
