Permanent vacancies advertised in the ACT Public Service Gazette are open to all Australian citizens and permanent residents. Positions that are restricted at the discretion of the Chief Executive are flagged with a # symbol in the Gazette and are noted as restricted in other advertisements.
Section 106 of the Public Service Management Act 1994 states that a temporary vacancy must be filled by a permanent officer who is available and suitable for the position. If a permanent officer is not available, a temporary employee may fill the vacancy.
Applicants who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents must have an approved and appropriate work visa.
If you accept an offer of voluntary redundancy from the ACT Public Service (ACTPS), you are not permitted to work with any ACTPS agency or authority for a minimum of 2 years. An exception may be made with specific approval from the Commissioner for Public Administration.
