Government Employee Number

Government Employee Number Visual logo

The GEN (Government Employee Number) is a unique identifier for all NSW government employees. The GEN, which is being introduced by the NSW Public Service Commission, is a key step in thinking about the NSW government sector as one. It is designed to help with career planning and job opportunities across the sector as well as enabling improved workforce management and analysis.

Your GEN will be a single key to log in to an increasing number of computer applications through the NSW Identity Hub, a whole of government identity and access management system. Your GEN will stay with you even if you transfer between agencies or leave and return to the government sector.
