Federal government

As the leading supplier of specialist personnel to Federal Government in Australia, we currently work with approximately 50 APS agencies in Canberra. Our panels include Department of Human Services, Department of Defence, Australian Taxation Office, Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO and many more. Through years of successful partnership, our recruitment specialists in Canberra and across Australia understand what it means to work with the Government’s technical and cultural environment. We also understand the importance of security and compliance – as an ISO quality assured organisation, Talent has the policies and procedures in place to ensure the Government receives a consistent, fully transparent recruitment service.

State Government

When it comes to State government, our experience is unmatched. All of our eight Australian Talent branches are long-term recruitment suppliers to their local state government. Our state government relationships currently include health, revenue, police, transport, justice, parks, roads, planning and education. In each location, our dedicated government recruitment specialists are our most experienced – with an average of 15 years working exclusively in the sector, and the networks to match.

Local government

From legacy technology to data storage and rising customer expectations, we understand the unique challenges facing local councils and have a pool of candidates who can assist. We’ve got extensive experience working with councils around Australia. In New South Wales, we are authorised to work with all councils through Local Government Procurement Pty Ltd. In Victoria, we are an approved supplier to 42 regional local councils through the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) and Comensura. In Queensland, we are proud to work with Brisbane City Council, Townsville Regional Council and Sunshine Coast Regional Council. With a presence in all major states, wherever your council is located – we can help.

  • This is my third contract through Talent. Over the years, Talent has proven to have a clear understanding of the Federal Government sector and my skills and experience. Since working with Talent they have always been professional, very caring and provided excellent customer assistance. They regularly check in on me to ensure that I am enjoying my role and they are genuinely invested in my wellbeing. Ever since working with Talent, they have never missed sending me a Christmas Hamper with the best locally produced products.
    Millicent Reddie, Project Planning & Controls Specialist, Federal Government
  • Talent has helped me secure multiple contract roles within the Federal Government. Their knowledge of the sector, combined with great customer service has made them a valued and trusted career partner.
    Max Yefremov, Project Manager, Federal Government
  • I have absolutely loved contracting through Talent. Having worked with many agencies over more than a decade in this industry, I can unequivocally say my best experience has been with Talent. Their contracts are fair and clear, the HR/payroll departments are extremely supportive yet unobtrusive. My account manager Steve Jobson is the same, he always makes the time to have a chat when I need it. I look forward to many more years working with Talent.
    Varun Madadi-Reddy, Services Australia
  • I have been contracting to the Australian Public Service at various departments and agencies for over 20 years and for the majority of that time I have worked with Talent. I've always found the people at Talent to be really efficient, friendly and above all, professional. Importantly, they understand the very unique Canberra market well and clearly understand the processes of the APS and Federal Government. The team is always spot on with making sure I get paid on time and with contract renewals.
    Ian Heffernan, Senior Infrastructure Project Manager

A global government focus

To utilise our government specific knowledge, network and continue to attract the best candidates for the government sector we have developed a Government Centre of Excellence (GCE). A global team of our Government and public sector recruitment specialists come together regularly to discuss changes to legislation, newly available candidates, major digital transformation projects and challenges facing Government departments around the world. This knowledge centre is just one example of what sets us apart.
