The Generalist stream gives graduates a thorough understanding of what Defence does, and the opportunities it offers.
This stream takes 12-months to complete and consists of three rotations of four months each. The first of these is undertaken in Canberra, with the possibility of one in a regional area for those who want a further challenge. Rotations are offered across the entire Department.
Our successful candidates are professional, self-motivated team players, who possess high level communication and interpersonal skills and adapt easily to change. You will be committed to your own learning and development and share Defence’s values and vision for the future. We will provide you with experiences in three work rotations covering a variety of roles within the Department and will help you develop the necessary professional skills required for a long-lasting career. In each rotation you will have real tasks and responsibilities, and be fully integrated into the work team to ensure you reach your full potential.
We are committed to helping you develop further by providing a suite of training designed for the Program covering personal, technical, departmental and public-service wide skills.
