The Graduate Recruit Alumni Society

Hero Image

First established in 1998, the Graduate Recruit Alumni Society (GRAS) works "to support a stronger social and professional development network within the graduate and graduate alumni community." GRAS currently has over 400 members who have entered the Victorian Public Service (VPS) through graduate programs, including the Graduate Recruitment and Development Scheme.

GRAS brings members regular news and events. This includes social events like weekly Friday night drinks, sporting teams, an annual ball and special trivia nights and snow trips, as well as professional development news and seminars - some hosted by alum colleagues.

GRAS is a not-for-profit organisation that has no political affiliation and does not directly form part of the VPS.

GRAS membership provides free or discounted access to GRAS events throughout the year, and ensures you remain updated with graduate and alumni news and events.
