Within the Queensland Public Sector, the primary objective of Recruitment and selection remains the same: to find the right person for the job. However, recent changes to the Public Sector Act 2022 and the Recruitment and selection (Directive 07/23) dictate a shift from merit-based recruiting to recruiting the eligible person best suited for the position.

This one day, engaging and interactive short course provides participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to carry out a recruitment and selection process by equipping them with an understanding of the Directive and how it is applied in practice.

The Recruitment and selection 1-day extension module can either be added as an extra day to the 3-day People Matters leadership program or be booked separately as a 1-day program on its own. Both are available virtually or in person.

The Recruitment and selection module can also be delivered in-house for groups of up to 20 participants.
