Working for government can be incredibly rewarding at a local, state or Federal level. However working within a government environment can be very different to the private sector.
Understanding the differences and feeling confident in your knowledge of legislation, policy and procedures will help you develop what could be a life long career in the Public Service.
It is important to note that in order to become a state public servant you usually have to complete Year 10 or your Senior Secondary Certificate of Education, depending on the entry position. Your employment prospects may be improved if you have qualifications or basic skills in computing, data entry and administration. Training is also given on the job. The principle of merit in recruitment and promotion means that the person whose skills, knowledge and experience best match the job requirements will be selected. In addition, each position in state government has specific requirements, and job applicants need to demonstrate that they meet these requirements by responding to set selection criteria.
