What makes a good committee member, and how to apply?

The Merit Protection Commissioner is interested in people who are:

  • fair and professional
  • committed to ethical employment decision-making.

You must have a good understanding of how to apply:

  • evidence based employment decisions
  • procedural fairness.

It helps if you also understand better practice staff selection and have been exposed to a range of innovative staff selection approaches.

If you are a current APS employee and this sounds like you, forward an expression of interest for the promotion review committee (PRC) and/or the independent selection advisory committee (ISAC) register.

Your application consists of one referee report and the completed proforma. You can send it via email to review@apsc.gov.au. Your agency will need to agree to you participating in a committee.
