Department of Communications and the Arts


Eileen from the Department of Communications and the Arts contacted us with an opportunity for students with disabilities. I’ve reproduced the proposed content below.

Are you a student with a disability, would you be interested in applying for a Graduate Program in the communications and arts sector?

Applications for the Department of Communications and the Arts 2019 Graduate Program are now open

We are committed to supporting the employment and career development of people with disability. Our participation in the Affirmative measures – disability scheme means we will progress an applicant with a disability to a further stage in the recruitment process, where they apply into the scheme and meet the minimum requirement of the vacancy.

As the Department of Communications and the Arts, we are the Australian Government’s lead advisor on communications and the arts—two of the most innovative and dynamic sectors in our economy.

Our mission is to create an environment in which all Australians have access to high quality communications services and diverse artistic and cultural experiences.

Graduates are an important part of our workforce and we invest significantly in our graduate program each year.

Further information about our 2019 graduate program and the application process see  and the attached the 2019 Graduate Program Job Information Pack – Affirmative Measures – Disability Employment document.
