The GSE legislative framework provides a structure for the movement of senior executives and non-executive employees within the Public Service and within and between government sector agencies.

The benefits of this type of mobility include:

  • allowing the structure of the sector workforce to evolve in line with Government priorities
  • providing opportunities for employees to develop new capabilities, experience and knowledge and be exposed to different work environments
  • enabling the filling of roles quickly and efficiently.
