Public Sector Careers

Public Sector Careers

The public sector (Federal, State and Local) employs over two million people, providing numerous well-paid jobs and career pathways.

Entry into the public sector is a major barrier for many people, confronted by onerous application and interview processes.

Applying for public sector jobs is complex requiring detailed written key selection criteria and capability statement responses.  Unless a candidate clearly understands these processes, access to a public service job will only be a dream.

The application and interview stages are totally different from each other and need to be treated as separate exercises. 

This is where ACMA's expertise has helped numerous clients to gain entry into the public service by providing ongoing advice and technical support throughout all recruitment stages!

With our advanced technology, job search strategies and national job market intelligence we assist people throughout Australia/NZ to get the public service job or promotion they is a complex task to get right.

Career advice based on RESEARCH...not chance!

ACMA provides a full case management process that works with clients until they are placed into their next public sector position or promotion...with no limitations on length or intensity of support required.

A lot of people tend to think, “I don’t need help with my public sector job search, I can land a job on my own.” But the truth is, job search today is SO different from what people think it is.
