Eligibility for JSE access
Appendix A of the JSE Recruitment Policy (JSE Policy) sets out who is eligible to access and apply for roles through the JSE jobs board. This includes:
- Victorian Public Service (VPS) employees employed under Part 3 of the Public Administration Act 2004 (Vic),
- all employees of the Teaching Service, per s2.4.37 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic), and
- employees entitled to access VPS vacancies under the terms of the Ballarat and Latrobe Valley Employee Support Package 2018 Deeds.
To assess if an employer is a VPS employer, and its staff are therefore eligible to access the JSE, you can refer to the column heading ‘Public Sector Body Type’ under this list from the VPSC. In rare circumstances, a VPS employee may work for an employer that is not included in this list, for example, while on secondment or as part of a hosting arrangement. As a VPS employee, these employees are still eligible to access the JSE. If you are unsure about eligibility, please contact email@example.com.

JSE Access for Public Sector employees
Some employees of Victorian public entities 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. (See JSE Recruitment Policy – Appendix B.)

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.

To assist business continuity and help build capability across the VPS, the following employees are eligible to apply for jobs through the JSE for 9 months after they leave the VPS:
a. Redeployees (where redeployment has not been achieved by the end of their Redeployment Period) who leave the VPS on and after 31 March 2022 (noting their priority consideration status ceases upon the end of their Redeployment Period); and
b. Fixed term employees whose contracts end on and after 31 March 2022 (employees who resign from their fixed term position prior to the nominal expiry of their fixed term contract are not eligible for 9 months extended access to the JSE).
Note that these changes do not apply retrospectively to former employees who left the VPS prior to 31 March 2022, or to fixed-term employees who voluntarily resign prior to the nominal expiry date of their contract.
