The ACT Public Service (ACTPS) is committed to attracting, developing and retaining a diverse workforce. As an employer, the ACTPS strives to achieve a diverse and skilled workforce where individuals are valued for their differences, experiences, knowledge and backgrounds and the contribution they can make. As well as celebrating and supporting diversity in the ACTPS, there are a range of support mechanisms in place to support our employees including Support Networks, individual Inclusion support, staff awareness training, coaching and mentoring, and individual career development training.
The ACT Government has responsibility for state/territory functions such as administration, health, education, emergency services, parks and nature conservation and the administration of justice, as well as local government functions such as roads, libraries, and waste collection. This means employment opportunities with the ACTPS are just as diverse, and can include opportunities in many different roles, such as: Administration, Horticulture, Education, Events, Transport and City Services to name just a few.
