Why use an ISAC?

An independent selection advisory committee (ISAC) aligns the business requirements of agencies with a tailored selection exercise. The ISAC then assures and reinforces the integrity of that outcome with staff.

Agencies use ISACs, for a range of benefits, including:

  • having merit-based recruitment solutions that are streamlined, cost-effective and timely
  • maintaining good workplace relations through transparent, independent, impartial selection processes
  • delivering cost-savings for agencies by staff placements not subject to promotion reviews
  • relying on flexible process that accommodates multiple selection methodologies
  • creating merit pools of preferred candidates ranked by relative suitability
  • enabling agencies to make staff placements for similar job vacancies over a 12 month period
  • gaining expert knowledge in best practice staff selection.
