Public sector employees play an important role in the development, review and implementation of government policies, and they provide an array of services for the community.
The public sector comprises federal, state and territory governments, statutory bodies, and state-owned corporations. According to recent data published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) the public sector employs over 1.6 million people, representing 18 percent of the Australian workforce. Employment growth has been strong over the last five years.
Given the array of services provided by public sector workers, there is a massive range of occupations within the sector, spanning areas such as education, health, policy, finance, police and emergency services.
