A fixed-term and casual employment register is not a vacancy and inclusion on a register does not guarantee any offer of employment will be made.


The State Service Management Office invites applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people interested in being included on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Fixed-term Employment Register (The Register). The Register will remain open for recruitment up to and including 28 August 2019.

The Register is used for filling Aboriginal Identified positions as well as vacancies targeted to be filled under specific Aboriginal recruitment strategies.

Aboriginal Identified positions are positions that have been approved by the Head of the State Service in accordance with Employment Direction No. 10 – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Tagged and Identified Positions. They are positions in which the Aboriginal Community is the major client group; therefore Aboriginality is an essential requirement. The positions involve:

  • working with Aboriginal clients;
  • providing a service to Aboriginal clients; and/or
  • developing policy or programs that have an impact on the Aboriginal community.

The Register may also be used to fill other fixed-term full-time, part-time or casual positions for periods up to 12 months.
