“Statistics tell the story”

An exciting opportunity is now available to be part of the 2015 ABS Graduate Development Program (GDP). The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is changing. Over the next few years we will be transforming how we collect, collate, manage, use, reuse and release statistical information.

To help us make these changes we require graduates who are motivated, innovative and committed. To be part of the team that is moving the ABS forward, we require Information Communication & Technology (ICT) graduates and graduates with a background in mathematics and econometrics to provide specialised support. However we also need graduates from a wide variety of disciplines to work right across our business areas.

About the program:
The nine month GDP program commencing in February 2015 will provide practical on-the-job training through team based work or projects. The GDP involves structured formal training and development activities designed to:

  • Assist in the transition into the ABS and Australian Public Service
  • Provide training specific to your subject matter area
  • Provide work rotations and formal projects (subject to areas placed)
  • Provide support through a buddy system and encourage other networking opportunities.

What we offer:

  • Competitive remuneration package of $59,368 plus superannuation for ICT graduates or $54,130 plus superannuation for all others.
  • Relocation assistance for graduates moving to Canberra, where the majority of graduate positions are located.
  • Salary advancement on successful completion of the program.
  • A flexible workplace supporting a healthy work-life balance.


  • You must be an Australian Citizen before the program commences in January 2015.
  • You must have completed at least an Australian recognised undergraduate qualification, before the program commences in 2015.
  • Your most recent qualification (at the Bachelor degree level, or higher) must have been completed between 1 Jan 2012 – 31 Jan 2015
  • You must be prepared to undertake a character check and medical assessment prior to commencing your employment.
