The Transfer and Secondment Guidelines provide advice to government sector agencies on the following movements:
- Transfer of non-executive employees between different government sector agencies for an indefinite period
- Secondment of non-executive employees between government agencies for a limited period
- Secondment of an employee between a NSW government sector agency and a non-government sector body.
Changes to transfers and secondments
On 31 August 2018 the Government Sector Employment (General) Rules 2014 were amended to enable Public Service agency heads to determine the appropriate advertising and assessment requirements when filling a role through transfers and secondments. This is consistent with requirements applying to other NSW government sector agency heads.
Senior executive movements
Information on assignment of Public Service senior executives is available in the Assignment to role guideline.
