Pros & Cons

  • The people are great to work with, and the work is interesting and engaging.
  • Knowing that you're playing (a very small) part in tackling climate change is rewarding.
  • Interesting work that aligns with my personal values.
  • Positive work culture and team environment. The size of the agency is really great - right in the goldilocks zone. Rewarding and intellectually stimulating work.
  • The agency administers some of the government's climate change policies, but is less influential in driving the design of those policies in the first place.

Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate activities are linked to the standards and responsibilities of the Australian Public Service. Apart from that, the agency is taking steps to reduce the environmental impact of its activities (e.g. energy and emissions, waste). It also has an active social club that fundraises for many charities and NGOs every year.

Management
As with any organisation, this will be somewhat dependent on the personalities of those in management. On the whole, however, I have found management to be approachable and communicative.

Compared to other graduate application processes, CER's was quite straightforward. No unnecessary psychometric testing or group tasks, just questions and tasks that were directly applicable to the roles.
