Government Jobs in SA
Positions in the South Australian public sector are advertised in the Notice of Vacancies (www.vacancies.sa.gov.au). Many positions are available only to current public sector employees, however the public can apply for positions advertised in the public press. Positions open to the public are marked (Advt) in the Notice of Vacancies.
Non-ongoing, or temporary positions of three months or less are often advertised on Australian JobSearch (www.jobsearch.gov.au) or through a Job Network provider. If you are interested in working in a particular agency, check with their HR section as to which method they use to fill temporary vacancies, and how they source their temporary staff.
Graduate recruitment is administered by www.graduate.sa.gov.au.
