Career portal

Careers.Vic is the official search portal for public sector jobs and career opportunities with the Victorian Government.

Over 250 Victorian Public Sector employers advertise job vacancies on the website. They include:

  • all public service departments and agencies
  • public hospitals and health services
  • public schools
  • public entity employers, such as Victoria Police and Health Services.


It’s important that the Victorian Public Service is diverse and inclusive, so it reflects the community we serve. That’s why we’ve made pathways for applicants with a disability and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders.
