Frequently Asked Questions


montage

Are all vacancies advertised on the careers website?

All permanent and some fixed-term vacancies are advertised on our Jobs at DPIPWE web page and at www.jobs.tas.gov.au and if appropriate, local and/or interstate newspapers and/or other relevant publications.

Where can I find out more about a career with the Tasmanian Government?

General information about working for the Tasmanian Government is available at www.jobs.tas.gov.au. This site also advertises vacancies available at other Tasmanian Government agencies.

How do I find out more about an advertised job?

Each advertised job provides a contact at the bottom of the advertisement for any enquires. You may contact this person with any questions you may have about the job or how to apply.

Can I submit my resume in case a suitable job becomes available?

Applications and resumes can only be accepted in response to an advertised job. However, you can register to be sent e-mail alerts as soon as jobs that match your requirements are advertised. Go to Log In on the web-site (www.jobs.tas.gov.au) and click on Create New User to set up an account.

Some base-level vacancies of up to 12 months duration are recruited through Programmed Professionals and Searson Buck employment agencies who are contracted by DPIPWE. You should contact those agencies if you wish to be registered for employment. All selections are based on merit.

Can I apply for a job that is no longer advertised?

After the closing date applications generally will not be accepted. We may accept late applications if there are good reasons. The nominated contact officer for the relevant vacancy can advise further.

If I have a criminal record, can I still apply for a job at DPIPWE?

In general, any criminal history is not considered in the application process. However, there are a small number of occupational groups within DPIPWE (eg Client Service Officers in Service Tasmania, and Biosecurity Officers) which require satisfactory pre-employment checks.  Where this applies, this will be noted in the Statement of Duties.

How can I contact DPIPWE if I have a question about DPIPWE careers?
