Finance Professionals Capability Set

The Finance Professionals Capability Set consists of seven capabilities that define additional knowledge, skills and abilities required for roles within the finance profession.

They work in conjunction with the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework to support:

  • role design and description
  • recruitment
  • performance management
  • learning and development, and
  • workforce planning.

The Capability Framework applies to all public sector roles.

Every role requires, at an appropriate level, all of the capabilities in the Capability Framework, including the People Management capabilities for roles responsible for managing others.

The number of capabilities from the Finance Professionals Capability Set that apply to a role will depend on the breadth and nature of its accountabilities, but it is generally not expected that all seven capabilities will apply.
