The coronavirus crisis is temporarily changing how people live, work and go about their lives. This includes how we hire in the public sector.  

Even with people working remotely, its important hiring continues so the sector can support service delivery.  

But as public sector organisations have been telling us, hiring in a remote working environment can be hard. 

So we created ‘How to hire when working remotely – practical tips and a guide to complying with the law.  

This guide helps public sector organisation adapt their processes and comply with the employment principles and standards in the Public Administration Act 2004 

It’s not only helpful with coronavirus physical distancing, but also prepares us for a future where we may do more remote working.  

We wrote this guide with both employees and candidates in mind. 

We consulted the 8 Victorian government departments and Victoria Police.
