Careers and Employment at DEPI
A sustainable career that's as diverse as our natural environmentAll employment opportunities at DEPI can be found on the Victorian Government Careers website. They include jobs in a wide range of fields, such as general and applied sciences, biology, ecology, fire fighting, economics, law, engineering, finance, education, project management, human resources, communications and information technology.
We also offer a number of specialist employment programs:
- DEPI Cadetship Program
Get paid to study science at a Victorian university, plus employment with DEPI on completion of your degree.
- The DEPI Science Graduate Program
A two year career development program for recent graduates in science, natural resource management, ecology, conservation and related fields.
- VPS Graduate Recruitment and Development Scheme
A general program for graduates, involving 12 months of workplace rotations across the Victorian Public Service, then a return to ongoing employment in your "home" department or agency.
As an employer we treat all job applicants, employees and contractors on the basis of individual merit rather than on irrelevant personal characteristics such as age, disability/impairment, marital status, physical appearance, race, religion or sex.
We therefore employ people from many different backgrounds. And we benefit from the diverse range of perspectives and skills they bring to DEPI.
