The Department of Human Services (DHS) is boosting its technology ranks with the recruitment of 150 graduates with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) qualifications.
Recruits will join the CIO Group, which according to DHS is “responsible for delivery of government services and payments to the Australian public, communities and business through online channels”.
According to the DHS’ job advertisement, career pathways will include SAP design and development, enterprise architect, systems engineer, business analyst, test engineer, security administrator, change management, data analyst, and information portfolio business planning and development.
Applicants must have completed a bachelor degree or postgraduate degree in STEM over the last five years, and will receive training in areas such as SAP design, HANA, Java, Teradata, and program or project management.
The positions will be based in Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra.
DHS is currently undertaking the rollout of a $1 billion welfare payment system, and with SAP and other IT resources at a premium, it seems the agency has decided to ‘grow its own’ rather than look to the market for skills.
