Developing your digital career

Explore and expand on your digital career path in government.

This section is designed for those who are:

  • not new to digital, but new to the Australian Public Service (APS) or
  • working in the APS already.

As you become established in your role, you may start to gain a strategic view on digital’s role in the APS.

You may want to connect with peers across government, to find opportunities and share knowledge.

If you:

  • have been a digital professional for more than 2 years
  • are looking to broaden your skillset or gain more advanced expertise in your existing role.

Then we think you will find this information useful.
