State Recruitment Committee

As you may recall, we called for a review into state recruitment processes late last year, following a high volume of enquiries from members.

A working party was formed, made up of United Voice paramedic and EMD representatives.

Some of the questions raised by our members identified problems with:

  • Lack of importance placed on candidates’ work histories;
  • Length of process and notification of results;
  • Inequity on applicants who were/were not placed in development pool;
  • Inconsistency in comparing skills, knowledge and behaviour of applicants;
  • Lack of consultation with LASN managers. 

QAS agreed that the process was flawed and changes needed to be made to ensure future state recruitment is conducted as a fair, equitable and transparent process.

We will keep members up to date once a set of guidelines have been agreed upon.
