APS Indigenous Apprenticeships Program

The Indigenous Apprenticeships Program works is a pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to start their careers in the Australian Public Service (APS).

Since 2015, the IAP has given over 1,800 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people opportunities to join the APS. These are people with diverse backgrounds, including people leaving school, finishing study or looking for a new career.

The 12-month program offers:

  • a permanent, full-time, entry-level job in government
  • job security with a competitive salary
  • opportunities to progress your career, including a nationally recognised certificate or diploma qualification.

It also offers a range of roles across a number of departments and agencies. You could work in:

  • administration
  • policy and program development
  • service delivery
  • finance
  • human resources
  • information technology.

When you apply, we’ll ask you which department or agency you’re interested in. We’ll consider your application for all participating departments and agencies.

We’ll also ask where in Australia you’d like to work. You can apply for a role in one or more locations.

Expressions of interest for the 2024 program are open now. Find out more and apply here.
