RecruitAbility scheme

RecruitAbility can be applied to all vacancies across the APS, including Senior Executive Service roles.

Job applicants with disability who:

  • opt into the scheme
  • declare they have disability, and
  • meet the minimum requirements of a vacancy advertised under the scheme, are advanced to a further stage in the selection process.

All candidates will still be assessed on merit for engagement and promotion.

How do I opt into RecruitAbility?

You will need to opt into the RecruitAbility scheme in the diversity section of the application form. You must tick 'opt in' to participate in the scheme. Simply declaring that you have a disability will not automatically enrol you in the scheme.

For detailed information on the RecruitAbility visit the Australian Public Service Commission website.

Reasonable adjustments

We provide reasonable adjustments such as access, equipment or other practical support at relevant stages of the recruitment process and in any position you are made successful in. Please inform the contact officer listed in the information pack if you need any adjustments made.

Details about the reasonable adjustments scheme can be found on the Australian Public Service Commission website.
