ANAO 2018 Graduate Program

About the ANAO

The Australian National Audit Office (ANAO) seeks to improve public sector performance and accountability through independent reporting on Australian Government administration to the Parliament, the Government, audited entities and the community.

As well as financial audits, we also conduct performance audits and assurance reviews, highlighting areas where improvements can be made to benefit all Australians. Our work has real, immediate impacts on government programs, policies, projects, systems and reporting.

Our graduate program

With the ANAO Graduate Program, you’ll see what other grads don’t. We’ll teach you how to give independent analysis and advice on the management of Australian Government agencies.

Working on audits across many federal government agencies and entities, covering a range of topics, you’ll develop a real understanding of what goes on behind policy decisions and be part of work that has an impact on government administration.

You’ll receive support to develop your skills and reach your potential. We’ll provide you with study and training opportunities, including a formal qualification appropriate to the Australian Public Service.

You’ll also have the opportunity to work in different areas across the ANAO, giving you the full picture of our organisation.
