  • a standard working week of 37.5 hours;
  • 15.4% superannuation contributions;
  • 4 weeks of recreation leave per year;
  • 3 weeks of personal leave per year;
  • 16 weeks paid maternity leave;
  • 2 weeks paid parenting leave for spouses or partners; and
  • we will cover reasonable relocation costs to Canberra.

Opportunity for growth

The AOFM is a small agency and this gives employees access to mentoring from experienced professionals as part of their day to day work. It also offers the potential for exposure to a broader experience than can be the case in a section of a large agency or Department. Learning from your colleagues, you will develop your knowledge of financial markets, portfolio management and risk management.

We are committed to the ongoing development of our employees. Where appropriate, we arrange for employees to attend conferences, courses, and industry forums. This includes tertiary study or professional qualifications relevant to your role. The AOFM recognises that staff training and development, including on-the-job opportunities, are key to maintaining a high performing work environment.

APS employee census

The APS Employee Census is an annual feedback survey administered by the Australian Public Service Commission. The survey captures employee views on important workplace issues, such as job satisfaction, employee engagement, performance management and leadership.
