Developing future leaders - graduates [archived]
Please note: This material has been archived. For current information see our Leadership and Talent pages.
We’re designing a State Services-wide approach to graduate recruitment and development that provides experience through assignments in a number of different agencies. It will build on the best of existing graduate programmes run by agencies. We want to attract high achievers leaving university and encourage them to build an exciting career here.
In November SSC is hosting the first GradJam – an opportunity for graduates in their first role to come together, meet one another, and tell us what has worked in terms of their introduction to the Public Service and their personal development – and what we could do differently.
The State Services Leadership Success Profile (LSP) specifies the competencies needed by our leaders to deliver results in today’s challenging and complex environment. The competencies we’re looking for in graduates fit with these.
- Deliver results through self
- Deliver results through people
- Deliver results through vision
- Deliver results through execution
