I’ve spend a lot of time in Canberra, working in Federal politics (those were the days) and the Australian Public Service in the Department of Employment (called DEEWR then). I worked in Labour Market Strategy. Below is the scree from the APS jobs portal. If you’re thinking of applying, send me an email and I’ll give you some tips for free.
