Obtaining a job as an Immigration worker?

Hi all,

just wondering if anyone would have any information on how to get a foot in the door working for Immigration, or anything similar?

Does this require any form of study?

That's a loaded question on this forum!!! Out of respect for DIBP workers I'll ask that the sarcastic/negative responses to this (wonderful) question not be posted as DIBP-bashing is not productive.

Here's a link to get you started: Careers

Best,

Why would you assume anyone be bashing DIBP ? I'm just surprised anyone would think you could possibly join without any study/ training !
( think you might have to be a citizen too !)

Yes you need to be a citizen to work for the federal government.

It really depends on what you want to do. Call centre would not require a uni degree.

Also as the government wants to get rid of jobs in the federal government there probably won't be many vacancies. I have been told that they can only advertise externally if they cannot find anyone suitable within in the APS.

Good-luck

Louise, DIBP is the Department of Immigration and Border Patrol - DIAC's new name.

Mark wasn't saying anyone WAS bashing them yet - just trying to pre-empt any comments of that nature, lol.
