The diversity of work we do is incredible. We make a difference each and every day to the lives of Queenslanders. Our activities range from developing new fruit and vegetable varieties to securing the economic viability of our state’s primary producers, and from testing driverless cars to ensuring young Queenslanders have the best possible education.
We are preparing our workforce for the future with the right skills and people to meet the state’s needs. This means developing a workforce with a strong sense of innovation and a passion for addressing these needs. We are fostering this new way of thinking.
Our careers are vast and we offer employees the opportunities they need to achieve success in every part of their life. Our people have competitive salary options, flexible work, various health and wellbeing benefits, and development opportunities.
Flexible work has significant and widespread benefits for employees, their families and the Queensland public sector. We recognise the importance of providing flexibility in the workplace and provide our employees with contemporary ways of working to achieve a healthy work-life blend.
We are committed to building an inclusive and diverse workforce that better reflects the community we serve—and makes business sense. This means creating an inclusive culture that promotes the skills and insights of our people irrespective of gender, ethnicity, generation, sexual orientation or ability.
We asked our people why they work for Queensland, and here’s what they said.
