Step 2 how do I check if there are promotion review applications?

You can check the Notification of promotion review applications webpage. It is updated every Friday by 2:00pm (AEST).

We telephone recruitment areas to confirm the receipt of applications and seek a recruitment contact person's details for the review.

If no valid applications are received within 14 days of the notice in the Public Service Gazette, the promotion is confirmed.

Until that date, the promotion is nominal. See 'what happens if I don't apply for review within the timeframe'.
