The Northern Territory Government Employment Programs Unit coordinates the recruitment and sector wide induction of apprentices, graduates and indigenous cadets on behalf of NTPS agencies.

These programs support whole of government initiatives for employees and increase the capacity and capability of the NTPS.

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 NTPS and reaffirm the government’s commitment to encouraging local jobs and industry. In turn this builds a skilled resource group from which the NT Government and the NT community benefits.

The activities undertaken by the Employment Programs Unit are underpinned by a commitment to fostering partnerships with organisations and providing appropriate help and advice.
