ICT in government

As an Australian Government employer, you want to position your organisation to attract, engage and retain the most qualified, experienced and skilled talent, for ongoing and non-ongoing employees, from entry level to the most senior positions.

Government ICT recruitment is a major strength at face2face. We have worked for more than 100 public sector departments and have a large number of long-standing relationships built over many years.

face2face understands government – structure, terminology, major policies and priorities. We also understand government position levels. And we are familiar with government legislation and policies, including, for example, the Public Service Act 1999 and the Privacy Act 1988.

Importantly, with government ICT requirements, we support public sector organisations to recruit based on the all-important and mandatory merit principles and APS Values. You’ll also benefit from support in the areas of diversity and inclusion.

Also important is the need to action recruitment requests quickly. We get that government recruitment is more often than not fast paced and urgent. Our ICT recruiters and support personnel are accustomed to getting requests for positions in and moving exceptionally fast. We can even provide resumes in a matter of a couple of hours.

The vast majority of our ICT candidates are already security cleared.

Merit-based principles

face2face understands the key components of merit-based decisions (apsc.gov.au), which is that the assessment is to:

  • be made of the relative suitability of the candidates to perform the relevant duties, using a competitive selection process
  • be based on the relationship between the candidates’ work-related qualities and the work-related qualities genuinely required to perform the relevant duties
  • focus on the relative capacity of the candidates to achieve outcomes related to the relevant duties
  • be the assessment is the primary consideration in making the decision.

Supplier panel arrangements

Procuring our services is easy. face2face has competed for, and won, positions on national government-preferred supplier panels, such as the Australian Digital Health Agency, Australian Federal Police, Australian Taxation Office and The People Panel. We are also on the BuyICT and NSW Contingent Workforce panels.
