The Attorney-General’s Department is seeking candidates to fill current and future vacancies across various positions at the APS Level 5 classification. The department achieves this by conducting a Talent Pipeline process. This process will be used to create a merit pool to fill vacancies at this level across the department for the duration of the merit pool.

This is an exciting opportunity for suitably qualified and experienced candidates who can deliver influential and positive policy contributions to the Governments legal agenda for the good of the Australian people.
