Greater Graduate Program

The Greater Graduate Program provides opportunities across six Queensland Government departments, including the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF).

We deliver world-class research and development, provide leadership on industry policy, protect industries against pests and diseases and maintain animal welfare standards, manage fisheries sustainably and maximise the value of state-owned forests.

The department recruits graduates from a diverse range of disciplines, including:

  • forestry
  • wildlife biology
  • horticultural studies
  • veterinary science
