Refer to your agency's strategic workforce plan. Ensure your role fills a critical gap and helps deliver your short-term and long-term objectives.
Determine if your role will be an ongoing senior executive services (SES) vacancy or a contract for a fixed-term (under Section 122 of the Public Service Act 2008).
Use fixed-term contracts to attract or retain senior executives with critical skills you need for a set time to complete an identified project or objective.
Establish or review a roles classification level
If your role is new, or an existing role with significantly changed work responsibilities, complete a role evaluation to determine the work value and applicable classification level.
For SES roles classified SES 4 High, use Mercer.
You must get Governor in Council approval for changes to:
- the number of SES profile positions in your agency
- SES profile classification levels.
Submit your changes to the Public Service Commission Chief Executive (CCE). Email CandSES@psc.qld.gov.au for help.
Providing the CCE approves your request, they’ll submit your request to the Premier for consideration and approval to submit to the Governor in Council.
See the SES Profile management procedures policy for more.
