    We proud to offer the following working conditions:

    • up to 12.75% employer funded superannuation
    • opportunities for professional development
    • programs that support mental and physical health and wellbeing including access to confidential counselling through our employee assistance program
    • flexible work hours and work arrangements based on operational requirements
    • a modern workspace that supports and improves information sharing, engagement, collaboration, wellbeing and productivity
    • a structured onboarding and induction program to equip you with the knowledge and skills to quickly understand your new role and responsibilities
    • a workplace based on positive performance management principles and supported by a collaborative annual Performance Development Agreement process.

    You also have the chance to be recognised and rewarded for outstanding employee performance and achievement in the workplace. We do this through a range of awards programs, including the DPC Achievement Awards, Australia Day and service awards.

    Balancing work and family or other commitments

    Our flexible work practices mean you can more effectively balance work and family/life commitments. You will be able to discuss with your manager flexible options that are appropriate for your role and work area, such as:

    • parental leave, including 14 weeks paid maternity leave and an additional period of unpaid leave, as well as special responsibility
    • accrued time off (flex-time)
    • part-time employment
    • job sharing opportunities
    • purchased leave (leave without pay that gives you more time off in a year than the standard four weeks' recreation leave)
    • teleworking (working from outside your workplace using telecommunications technology)
    • phased retirement.

    The terms and conditions of employment are set out in the Public Service Act 2008, the Queensland Public Service Officers and Other Employees Award - 2015 (PDF, 821KB) and the State Government Entities Certified Agreement 2019 (PDF, 1.17MB).

    Specific employment conditions applying to Senior Officer and Senior Executive Service roles are detailed in relevant employment Directives.
