Strategic advisory roles at the centre of government

The Strategy Unit in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet is responsible for advising the Prime Minister on key strategic medium-term issues.  This is an opportunity to work at the centre of government and be involved in the provision of strategic advice.

To be considered for these roles you will have strong policy analysis skills, the intellectual capacity to see connections between issues and across time, and the analytical agility to work across a broad range of topics.  You will be comfortable working in a high autonomy environment, dealing with high degrees of ambiguity and uncertainty, and exercising discretion and judgement.

To be eligible for this position, you must be able to attain and maintain an appropriate security clearance. Secondments from other government agencies are welcomed.
