The National Indigenous Australians Agency are seeking applications for Policy and Program Advisers at the APS4, APS5, APS6, EL1 and EL2 classifications to support the development, implementation and evaluation of strategic, social and economic policies and programs in the NIAA. These roles are fast-paced, dynamic and present an exciting opportunity to ensure the NIAA is sustainable and its operations underpinned by sound advice to government and support for impacted communities both now and into the future.


We work in partnership to deliver our services and require people that are resilient, flexible and able to work together as one team to design and implement new ideas and ways of working that address the unique needs of individuals and communities across Australia.


With the recent release of the Commonwealth’s Implementation Plan for the National Agreement on Closing the Gap, there is an increased emphasis on Indigenous affairs and we will be delivering substantial bodies of work over the coming years.


We have an ambitious reform agenda ahead of us. So if you are someone that wants to leave your mark on the public service and be able to point to an accomplishment that has lasting impacts for the Australian people, NIAA is the place for you.


Through this recruitment process, we will fill roles on an ongoing and non-ongoing basis (for up to 18 months). We have a number of immediate and future vacancies that may arise. The merit pools established will be drawn upon to fill policy and program roles over the next 12 months.

For further information about the roles please visit our careers page.


To be eligible for these positions you must be an Australian Citizen. 

The occupant must be able to obtain and maintain a Baseline level security clearance, or hold a current security clearance of an appropriate level.
