The Clean Energy Regulator Graduate Development Program provides you with the opportunity to develop a well rounded knowledge of the work of the agency, gain experience in the public sector and develop a deep understanding of Australia’s biggest policy developments. Participants of the Graduate Program will experience:
During your graduate year, you will work in three areas of our agency. The rotation structure allows us to give our graduates a wide range of experiences. By working across business areas, graduates develop an understanding of the agency’s work in the administration of climate change policies and regulation of carbon and renewable energy markets.
Throughout the program, you will be provided with the necessary training and development required to be effective in your role and to provide you with the foundation skills required to launch your APS career. Through participation in the program, graduates will gain relevant knowledge and skills in government administration as well as the technical expertise required to be an effective technical specialist within the Clean Energy Regulator.
The program includes a unique opportunity to complete and present a major project. This project provides you with access to our executive and business experts across the agency. Past graduates have presented projects which have gone onto inform changes and improvements within the agency.
In addition to support from the agency and the graduate coordinator, you will also receive individual support from buddies (former graduates) and mentors. As a graduate, you will also have the opportunity to be involved in events across the agency as part of the agency's Social Club.
As a regulatory agency working in a complex environment, we are looking for graduates from varied backgrounds. We are looking for graduates with high-level analytical and communication skills, along with people who work well in teams. Practical, results-oriented people who are able to work under pressure, occasionally in difficult environments, meet tight deadlines and who are pro-active in getting out and about and making contacts.
Recent graduates have had degrees in Environmental Science and Management, Development Studies (environmental sustainability), Science (Geology) and Engineering.
