Working for us
Our work has a real impact on the lives of Australians, particularly those living in rural and regional areas.
Working for our Agency, you will engage regularly and work collaboratively with primary producers, communities, all levels of government, and agricultural organisations.
You will provide support to those who are living through the immediate and longer-term effects of the 2019 floods in North Queensland and drought, ensuring they’re given the right level and type of support and advice at the right time, and are able to better prepare for and withstand future economic shocks.
The Agency’s guiding principle is “Locally led, locally understood and locally implemented” and the Agency brings together all levels of government, non-government and key industry representatives to work with and support people who are impacted by the flood and drought.
