Job Description

As an Assistant Director within DFAT, you will use your skills to inform government decisions and provide strategic legal and/or policy advice on issues that contribute to the development and implementation of DFAT’s foreign, trade and development policy and its global corporate management functions.

These roles may see you negotiate, advise, and litigate on a diverse range of high profile international, trade, investment, regulatory, and domestic law issues.

Assistant Director roles will require you to have a law degree (or equivalent), from a recognised Australian tertiary education provider, or a degree from an overseas tertiary education provider recognised for admission to practice in Australia. For some roles, you must be admitted or are eligible to be admitted to practice in Australia.

We offer a great team environment with a constant stream of interesting and rewarding work across the breadth of the government’s agenda. We also offer flexible work arrangements, including part-time hours.
