There are 5 simple steps in applying for the program.

Your suitability or performance at each step will determine whether you progress to the next stage. If you’re successful, you’ll be notified by email as you progress through each step.

 1. Submit your application

To get started, complete our online application form to express your interest.

Your one-page summary will be an opportunity to demonstrate your written communication skills.  

 2. Complete online testing 

If you’re shortlisted, you’ll receive an invitation to complete psychometric and cognitive testing. This is a short online assessment to help us understand if you’re a match for Queensland Parliament’s culture and your capacity for logical reasoning. 

 3. Attend an interview

If you’re successful in proceeding to the next stage, you’ll be invited to attend an interview. You’ll be asked behavioural-based questions, and your responses should include examples that demonstrate your ability or your experience.
