    Capability development

    At the Department of the Premier and Cabinet we have 42 competencies (knowledge, skills and attributes) that we use to recruit, develop and manage our employees' performance.

    This set of competencies is called the Career Capability Pipeline. We use the competencies:

    • in our role descriptions, which you'll see when you apply for a job with us
    • as a basis for the learning and development opportunities in our Competency Development Program
    • in our performance management as an employee you'll be expected to develop your own and/or your team's individual capabilities as part of your performance planning commitment

    We also encourage staff to act in higher level roles, and provide financial and leave assistance for approved study.

    Career development

    At our department we see career development as a shared responsibility between each employee and their management.

    You are responsible for taking the initiative to broaden your experience and build new skills. Your management and the organisation will support you to seek out opportunities and to take on more challenging roles.

    The opportunity to advance your career is one of the reasons to work for us.
