Capability in the NSW public sector

The NSW Public Sector Capability Framework outlines the core capabilities and behaviours that all NSW public sector non-executive and senior executive employees need to perform their role.

The Framework provides a foundation for:

  • Creating roles,
  • Recruiting
  • Managing performance
  • Career planning and development
  • Strategic workforce planning

Applying the Framework supports mobility and capability across the sector. It also creates a workforce that delivers effective services to the people of NSW.

Occupation-specific capability sets are available for some professions including: Information and Communications Technology (ICT), Finance, Procurement, Human Resources and Legal. These are supplementary to the core capabilities in the Capability Framework.
