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 155 of the Public Sector Act 2022).
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 role classifications between SES 2 Low and SES 4 Low use either Corporate Administration Agency (CAA) or Mercer Consulting (Australia) Pty Ltd.
For SES roles classified SES 4 High, use Mercer.
You must get Public Sector Governance Council (the council) approval for changes to:
- the number of SES profile positions in your agency
- SES profile classification levels.
See Section 249 of the Public Sector Act 2022.
Submit your changes to the Public Sector 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 council for consideration and approval.
See the SES Profile management procedures policy for more.
