Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

At the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C), our mission is to improve the lives of all Australians. We achieve this by delivering high-quality and timely advice to the Prime Minister, the Cabinet, and our Portfolio Ministers and Assistant Ministers.

We draw on the expertise of agencies in the Australian Public Service (APS), Australian jurisdictions and international partners. We work across the Government and cover economic, domestic and international issues, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs and APS stewardship.

To achieve this mission, we invest in our people, fostering and actively promoting an inclusive and diverse workplace. Our commitment to inclusion and diversity reflects the importance we place on our people and on creating a workplace culture in which every employee is valued and respected for their contribution.

Our Inclusion and Diversity Committee actively progress initiatives within the Department. These initiatives are also driven by the Senior Executive level Inclusion and Diversity Champion and are supported by seven Executive Champions and staff-led employee networks.

Among these networks is the Ability Network – providing members with a platform to break down barriers for staff with a disability through innovative and transformative ideas. The Network celebrates diversity and aims to support and empower employees with disability to succeed in their personal and professional lives.

At PM&C, we are committed to supporting the employment of people with disability. The RecruitAbility scheme is an APS initiative that aims to attract and develop candidates with a disability and is applied to all our of job vacancies.

PM&C has outstanding people and we will continue to draw on the talent, experience and enthusiasm of our staff. In responding to the emerging needs of Government, PM&C must have the right mix of talent, capacity and capability in place including a workforce that is rich in diversity and inclusive of all cultures.  

Our aim is to create an exceptional, modern and collaborative organisation that drives excellence across the APS and delivers quality outcomes for the Government and the Australian public.
