About the Digital Profession

Demand for digital skills is increasing across all sectors in Australia and internationally. The recent crises of 2020’s bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic have proven digital technology and ways of working are crucial to delivering world-leading services to the Australian public.

The Australian Public Service (APS) has established 3 professions: HR, Data and Digital to help build a stronger more capable workforce across key areas. The Digital Profession supports agencies to build and share the critical digital capabilities they need to deliver services to the public into the future.

To achieve the aims of the APS, the Digital Profession provides its members access to career development and training, mobility opportunities across government, networking and mentorship, and a platform for the recognition of their skills and expertise. We also provide guides and resources on best practice methodology to design and deliver digital services.

It is important that the public service attract, develop, and retain digital talent, whether as starting professionals or senior executives. This will foster digital leadership to create a culture of change and innovation.

The Digital Profession is open to those working in digital and ICT roles or use digital tools – it is not confined to those in ‘traditional’ IT jobs like programming. We also welcome members who are interested in digital transformation and technology’s role in government.

We want digital professionals to:

  • be recognised as digital ready – no matter what their job, discipline, or profession.
  • be ready for opportunities. This can be career-related, upskilling or collaboration.
  • take advantage of opportunities to be digital ready – such as training and mobility opportunities.
