Government Recruitment

The Australian Public Service works hard for the Australian community to provide a safe and prosperous nation for us and for generations to come. Understanding the nuances around local, state, and federal government bodies and agencies is complicated and requires specialised recruitment in the area.

Representing the largest employment population in the country, the public service has the Australian public at the heart of all they do. Not only is it about understanding the different areas of government state-by-state, but also the issues affecting government branches locally.


With a wide variety of roles available, Six Degrees Executive has a track record supporting Federal and State departments, through to smaller agencies and authorities, and local government. The public sector is a highly sought-after employer to work for and requires recruitment consultants knowledgeable in this specific area.

We understand the complex legislative framework that underpins public sector jobs and have deep knowledge in role-specific subject matter, to source the unique talent required to fill these important jobs.

We recruit across Federal, State, and Local Government, and statutory bodies and agencies, often sourcing specialised contractors for ad-hoc work with short turnaround times on large-scale projects.

Our team of recruitment specialists is focused on recruiting permanent and contract roles in a range of areas including Accounting and Finance, CommunicationsPolicyDigital, Marketing, Procurement, Supply Chain, EngineeringOperations and Technical, Technology, and our dedicated Executive Search practice places Board, Non-Executive/ Executive Director, and C-suite roles.
