NSW Public Service Recruitment Pools


The NSW Public Service Recruitment Pools are a new way of recruiting for roles that are commonly needed across NSW Government.

Once you are assessed as meeting the requirements of the role, you will be placed in a pool of candidates to be considered each time a new opportunity becomes available. This means that by submitting one application, you have the opportunity to be considered for a number of roles over the course of 12 months.

Applications for the Senior Policy Officer Recruitment Pool are now closed.
