The selection process for both recruitment and promotion is based on merit, and applicants will be asked to demonstrate that they are the best or most suitable person for the job. So please read through our guides to the recruitment process and make sure you understand what is required when applying for any position or program.
The NTPS promotes a philosophy of ongoing training and development. Government agencies have performance development programs in place that allow for professional development. Information about accessible training is available internally and many employees also belong to professional organisations and lists which provide other sources of development information. Staff in remote areas are entitled to additional assistance to participate in development programs, depending on their agency or employment category. This is in recognition of the unique challenges faced by remote employees in accessing training and development opportunities.
We also promote the principles of equity and diversity. This means that we want our employees to enjoy equal opportunities to make the most of their abilities. It also means that we continually strive to build a work environment that encourages and values the contributions of people of different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.
Finally, we are also very much committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of our employees while at work, and we believe in the value of flexible work practices that deliver innovative ways of balancing work and personal commitments.
