Your Induction

Your induction to Treasury aims to help you settle into your new role quickly. It consists of:

  • reading key Treasury policies to make you aware of compliance and legislative requirements that apply to all staff (before you start - see content below);
  • meeting with a member of the HR team on the morning of your first day to: verify identify and payroll details; sign that you have read and understood key policies; and take your photo for security/identification purposes;
  • undertaking a Branch and role induction with your supervisor over the first few weeks of employment to build your understanding of the duties and responsibilities of your new position, team and Branch. Your supervisor may assign a Branch Buddy to help answer any questions you may have;
  • completing online induction modules to: give you an overview of how we do things at Treasury; increase your understanding of Work Health and Safety and practical ergonomics in the Treasury Workplace; be aware of Unconscious Bias so that you can make fair, unbiased decisions; and promote a mentally healthy workplace; 
  • attending a Welcome to Treasury Orientation with other new starters to build on important key topics including Governance, Ethics and Integrity, and Workplace Behaviours; and
  • attending a group induction within the first few months where staff from the Office of the Secretary will go through important information, including our organisational structure, key agency priorities and the corporate planning framework. 

If you have any questions when you commence, your supervisor, branch buddy or HR can help you.
