The first step in selecting a person to fill a vacant position is to consider placing existing employees who are affected by workplace change.
Employees affected by workplace change
The Supporting employees affected by workplace change program matches employees who require placement to appropriate vacancies.
Direct appointment and conversion of fixed term temporary employees
Direct employment options may be available, including for fixed term temporary employees.
Chief executives may exempt or limit a vacancy from advertising subject to consideration of section 9.7 of the recruitment and selection directive.
If the criteria within the fixed term temporary employment directive are met, fixed term temporary employees may be converted to permanent status without the need for an advertised recruitment process.
