Australia’s three tiers of government (federal, state and local) are collectively responsible for our physical, social, economic and general well-being. Government employees develop policies and provide services to keep us safe and ensure our property, resources and assets are protected. Police, fire, emergency and correctional services work tirelessly to maintain public order and safety. This is a rewarding industry to be involved in, and you’ll be amazed at the career choices available to you.
