These programs support whole of government initiatives for employees and suit a people who wish to grow their experience, re-enter the workplace, earn a recognised qualification or build a career with NTG.

The early career development programs are a best practice recruitment strategy to develop new generations of employees. Their ideas, ambition and leadership potential help shape the future of the NTG and reaffirm the government’s commitment to encouraging local jobs and industry.

In turn this builds a skilled resource group from which the NTG and the NT community benefits.
