QRAA’s Grant Assessors assess grant applications for financial assistance from rural, small business and other industries. Grant assessment activities may vary from relatively straight-forward applicant eligibility assessments through to complex extractions from financial statements.
QRAA also plays a vital role after natural disasters like cyclones and floods assessing and distributing claims for government financial assistance from primary producers, small business and community organisations.
This is often when QRAA relies on the skills and passion of additional temporary staff to assist our existing team with the processing of those applications for assistance. QRAA is always keen to hear from individuals who might wish to put their name and experience forward and join the list of temporary staff that can get called upon following natural disasters in Queensland. These are paid positions not voluntary.
If you have these skills, please forward your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
QRAA employs agribusiness students and graduates for our internship program. Our interns work in many and varied roles across QRAA in administrative and technical capacities. A QRAA internship may be an ideal opportunity to gain some experience during university holidays or longer employment potentially leading to a career in financial assessment and/or rural lending.
If you are interested in an internship with QRAA, please forward your resume and availability to email@example.com.
