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.
To be eligible to be placed on the Register, you must be an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person.
As of 1 July 2016, there is a new process for determining eligibility for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs and services.
To be considered eligible, you must:
- have Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander ancestry;
- self-identify as an Aboriginal person and/or Torres Strait Islander; and
- be recognised as an Aboriginal person and/or Torres Strait Islander by the Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander community in which you live or have lived.
If you haven’t applied for Tasmanian Government Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander specific programs and services in the past you will need to complete the Eligibility form. The form includes:
- a statutory declaration stating that you meet the above criteria; and
- a statement of communal recognition to be completed and signed by an Aboriginal organisation.
