My favourite part of the Graduate Program was working across three different divisions in Treasury. Over the course of these rotations, I have been offered a range of exciting opportunities to work on challenging projects, like the election commitment costing process during the 2017 State Election. As a graduate, I have received overwhelming support and guidance from my supervisors and peers, who have overseen my personal and professional development since day one. The on-the-job experience has also allowed me to develop my skill set, whilst providing me with the insight into Treasury’s role as a central government agency.
The Graduate program was a fantastic introduction to working at Treasury and the WA public sector. I had access to plenty of training and additional support that helped me settle in to working here. During my time in the graduate program, I was able to get valuable experience across different areas of Treasury and worked on some substantial and challenging projects.
