All current Victorian Public Service (VPS) employees, i.e. employed under Part 3 of the Public Administration Act 2004, have access to the JSE (JSE Recruitment Policy.)
To assess if an agency is a public service employer and therefore its staff are eligible to access the JSE, you can refer to the Industry type under this list from the VPSC.
There is more information here: I have a government job, why can't I access the JSE?
Some employees of Public Entities that are not public service employers may be granted access to the JSE (for a limited period of time) if their organisation is affected by workforce change and they have been nominated by their organisation.
To support the Government’s commitment to increasing diversity and inclusion across the VPS, individuals are eligible apply for jobs through the JSE for 12 months after they leave the VPS if they:
- identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander; and/or
- identify as a person with disability.
Participants of the following employment pathway programs and internship programs (VPS and Victorian public entities) are eligible to access and apply for jobs through the JSE during their program and for 12 months after they complete their employment.
- Youth Employment Scheme
- Youth Employment Program
- Youth Cadetship Scheme
- Any Aboriginal internship program
- Any internship program for people with disability
- Any internship program for refugees and asylum seekers.
Redeployees and fixed term employees whose contract of employment ends on or after 31 March 2022 are able to access the JSE jobs board for a period of 9 months after they leave the VPS. Fixed term employees who resign before the nominal expiry date of their contract, and employees who resign from an ongoing contract of employment, are not eligible to access the JSE when their employment with the VPS ceases. This provision is not retrospective and former employees whose contracts concluded prior to 31 March 2022 are not eligible.
