The Australia Institute

The Australia Institute’s Graduate program is a unique opportunity to provide economists, political scientists or other researchers with on-the-job training with the most effective think tank in Australia.

The purpose of the Graduate program is to equip future leaders with the skills and experience to create progressive change. This is a position for people at beginning their career or those wishing to expand their experience in either research, communications or political and community engagement.

The Graduate program will provide training and mentoring in key aspects of ensuring the Institute’s research has real impact: research, communications, community, political and stakeholder engagement.

We expect that at the end of 12 months, graduates will leave The Australia Institute with the skills, knowledge and experience to move into positions within the NGO sector, public service or Parliament.

The position is for a fixed term of 12 months, full-time. To get the most out of the program it is preferable that candidates have completed their studies. Up to $1,000 is available to assist with the cost of moving to Canberra from interstate.
