The Six Degrees Executive Government and Public Sector recruitment team supports all tiers of Australian Public Sector organisations with their talent management needs. Our experienced talent advisors have an in-depth understanding of the unique agency priorities for the public service sector.

At Six Degrees Executive, we are committed to identifying the best-fit candidate for each team. To ensure our partnership with Australian Public Sector organisations at Federal, State and Local levels remains fit-for-purpose, we are able to apply the key competencies to assess candidate alignment with culture and strategic priorities.

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.
