About the Role

The Department of Treasury WA supports the government through the provision of expert financial management and economic policy advice that promotes the public interest. We achieve this through our effective management of the Western Australian public sector finances and formulation of the annual State budget, development of economic and revenue forecasts and monitoring of the State’s economy and major revenue bases. 

Our Analyst roles contribute to, and lead the development and delivery of high quality, evidence based analysis and advice to inform Government decision making in relation to financial management, policy development, service provision and infrastructure investment.

You will work collaboratively across the Department, and with external stakeholders, with a focus on assessing ‘what works’ and whether government programs and policies represent value for money. This includes advice on the prioritisation of funding for major projects, such as hospitals, roads, ports, schools, and prisons, as well as delivery of key services.

If successful, you can expect to work on a variety of high-profile government projects and initiatives, including:

  • Major infrastructure or social policy initiatives
  • The State’s financial performance reporting
  • Structural reform of the WA economy
  • Financial analysis
  • Economic development strategies
  • Forecasting revenue streams
  • Reform agendas
  • An appointment pool will be established which will be used to fill Analyst and Senior Analyst vacancies at Level 5, Level 6 and Level 7 (full-time, part-time, permanent and fixed-term) as they become available in the Department of Treasury (Treasury) over a 12 month period. The appointment pool will commence when the selection process is finalised.

    Treasury experience is highly valued in the wider public sector, opening up opportunities in other State Government agencies.
