Yes. To promote diversity in the VPS, hiring managers may seek approval for immediate external advertising (in parallel with advertising on the JSE) for roles subject to Section 12 of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) (see clause 23 of the Jobs and Skills Exchange Recruitment Policy).
There are 3 ways you can label your role to help people who want to apply:
- Prioritised role - Anyone can apply but you’ll assess and shortlist candidates from your special measure group first.
- Designated role - Only people from your special measure group can apply
- Identified role - Anyone can apply but you strongly encourage people from a group to apply. This doesn’t have to be a special measures role.
See this Victorian Public Sector Commission ‘Guide to hiring with special measures in the public sector’.
