Vacancies and how to apply

Jobs that are available to the general public are advertised on

As Sydney TAFE is part of the NSW Government we choose staff to work with us based on merit selection. When you apply for a job through jobs NSW a recruitment selection panel will select the person whose skills, knowledge, personal qualities and experience best match the job requirements. The information you provide as an applicant  in a written application, at interview and other assessment processes and checks enables the selection panel to compare all applicants against selection criteria.

Our recruitment process

The basic recruitment process for NSW Government positions is very similar to the majority of private sector employers:

  • Find a job
  • Submit an application for the job
  • Applications are reviewed by a selection panel
  • Interview and assessment of shortlisted applicants
  • Selection of preferred applicant (may include referee checks, etc.)
  • Appointment.

Work Health and Safety for contractors

Under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 an employer, now known as a ‘person conducting a business or undertaking’ (PCBU), has a primary duty of care to all workers. The Act includes contractors, subcontractors and employees of contractors within the definition of ‘workers’ (Section 28). 

How does Sydney Institute support WHS for contractors?

In order to comply with the new legislation Sydney Institute has developed the Contractor Safety Program which provides guidance on managing contractors, induction training for contractors and other health and safety advice.
