Employment conditions

RecruitAbility scheme

ASD is committed to supporting the employment and career development of people with disability. Our participation in the RecruitAbility scheme means we will advance an applicant with disability to a further stage in the recruitment process, where they opt into the scheme and meet the minimum requirements for the position.

How do I opt into RecruitAbility?

You will be asked if you want to opt into the RecruitAbility scheme in the diversity section of the application form. You must tick 'opt in' to participate in the scheme. Simply declaring that you have a disability will not automatically enroll you in the scheme.

Reasonable adjustments

We provide reasonable adjustments such as access, equipment or other practical support at relevant stages of the recruitment process. Inform the contact officer listed in the information pack if you need any adjustments made.

Details about the RecruitAbility scheme, including what is meant by 'disability', can be found on the Australian Public Service Commission RecruitAbility website.

ASD assists its employees to balance their work and private lives through the provision of flexible working arrangements and conditions, flexible leave arrangements and by promoting well-being.
