As of 11 March 2020, former public service employees who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander or a person with disability or is a participant of an identified employment program* will be able to view and apply for VPS jobs through the JSE for an additional 12 months as or after they leave their employment.
In line with the JSE Recruitment Policy, JSE access ceases with the end of VPS employment. Extending JSE access for these cohorts is an important step towards supporting less advantaged groups seeking employment and helping the VPS better reflect the diverse community it serves.
*Employment programs include:
- 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.
To ensure the successful implementation of this Policy, identification of eligible individuals needs to be made in the offboarding process.
