One employment pathway available at the SA Housing Authority, is the Graduate Program.

Graduate Employment

The SA Housing Authority Graduate program offers 12-month employment opportunities to recent and current university graduates to provide workplace experience in a role related to their chosen field of study.

These graduate programs are run according to the needs of the Authority's workforce and so jobseekers interested in graduate positions are encouraged to visit the I WORK FOR SA website, where you can view current graduate vacancies and/or register to receive job alerts as opportunities arise.

The program will allow graduates to develop their skills in a supportive environment, while building a valuable professional network.
As a Graduate Officer, you will be working with staff across your business unit. You will also be working with Senior Managers and Leaders across the Authority and in some cases Executives, external agencies and providers.
