Jim Chalmers Professional Career

Chalmers worked as a research officer in Queensland Premier Peter Beattie’s Department of Premier and Cabinet from 1999 to 2001. He was the ALP’s national research manager from 2002 to 2004, Shadow Treasurer Wayne Swan’s media adviser from 2005 to 2006, Opposition Leader Kim Beazley’s deputy chief of staff in 2006, and a senior adviser to New South Wales Premier Morris Iemma from 2006 to 2007.

Chalmers returned to work for Wayne Swan in the Department of the Treasury after Labor won the federal election in 2007, first as deputy head of staff and principal adviser (2007–2010) and subsequently as chief of staff (2010–2013). In 2013, he worked as the executive director of the Chifley Research Centre for a short time. In the same year, he wrote Glory Daze, a book exploring the gap between Australia’s great economic performance and public dissatisfaction with the government.

In the 2013 federal election, Chalmers was elected to parliament as a member of Labor Right, replacing retiring ALP member Craig Emerson in the Rankin Division. For Labor preselection, he defeated former MP Brett Raguse. Chalmers was appointed as a shadow parliamentary secretary in October 2013, a shadow minister in October 2015, and Shadow Minister for Finance after the 2016 election. He co-founded the Courtyard Group in 2016, a roundtable that brings together Labor MPs and “Australia’s greatest progressive thinkers from industry, academia, media, and consumer advocacy organisations.”

Following the federal election in 2019, Chalmers expressed interest in succeeding Bill Shorten as party leader and Leader of the Opposition. His relative youth and status as a Queenslander, as well as his involvement in the Labor Right faction, were considered as possible strengths. However, several members of his group had already decided to vote for Anthony Albanese of the Labor Left. Chalmers finally declined to run for the seat, allowing Albanese to take over without opposition. He then ruled out running for deputy leadership as well. In Albanese’s administration, he was later named Shadow Treasurer.
