Graduate Program

Housing employs two Aboriginal graduates each year for the Graduate Development Program. Our Graduate Development Program provides recent university graduates with opportunities to work with experienced professionals on multi-million dollar projects in the Western Australia housing market.

During the two year program, peer support and a dedicated mentor will help you transition from study to employment within the Western Australian Public Sector.

Public Sector Commission Aboriginal Traineeship Program


Each year we host up to six Aboriginal Trainees across the state from the Public Sector Commission (PSC) Aboriginal Traineeship Program.

The Program is an employment-based training initiative which provides young Aboriginal people, 25 years of age and under, with an opportunity to develop public administration skills and competencies. The program is co-ordinated by the Housing Authority in partnership with the Public Sector Commission.

The traineeship is for a period of 12 months which enables trainees to develop skills in public administration and build a sustainable career pathway. Trainees are paid a fortnightly wage for the training they undertake.

On successful completion of the traineeship, trainees receive a nationally and industry recognised qualification – Certificate II, III or IV in Government.
