Effective from 11 March 2020, former Victorian public service employees who: identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, or as 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 after they leave their employment.
In line with the JSE Recruitment Policy, JSE access typically 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
- Any Aboriginal internship program
- Any internship program for people with disability
- Any internship program for refugees and asylum seekers

This is important so that we can communicate with you after you have left your employment, and you can reset your password when you no longer have access to your work email.
