& Accountability



Mobility is the movement of a government sector employee through reassignment, transfer or secondment. It includes secondments and temporary assignments to a higher grade or band than the employee’s ongoing employment

This page provides information on movements of non-executive and senior executive employees:

  • within Public Service Agencies (through assignment to a different role)
  • between NSW government sector agencies (generally through transfer and secondment, however instead through assignment to a different role for Public Service senior executive movements within the Public Service)
  • between the NSW government sector and other sectors (through temporary assignment under s66 of the GSE Act)

See Recruitment & selection for information on recruitment on an ongoing, temporary, casual or term basis and conversion of temporary employees to ongoing employment.
