Interim arrangements for APS recruitment

On 31 October 2013, the Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Public Service, Senator the Hon. Eric Abetz, announced interim recruiting arrangements within the Australian Public Service to help meet the Government’s election commitment to reduce the public service by 12,000 employees through natural attrition. Detailed information on the interim arrangements can be found on the Australian Public Service Commission (APSC) website. While these interim arrangements are in effect, vacancies advertised are only open to ongoing APS employees unless otherwise specified.
