(2) How many temporary employees in your Department have not had their contracts renewed from 1 July 2008 to 31 March 2009, and what was the reason for the failure to renew contracts.

(3) How many unfilled vacancies exist in your Department as at 31 March 2009, and how many positions does your Department intend to fill between 2 April 2009 and 30 June 2009.

(4) How many of these positions will be advertised internationally between 2 April 2009 and 30 June 2009, and what is the proposed expenditure for these advertisements.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Two employees were made redundant from 1 July 2008 to 31 March 2009.

Both employees elected to take voluntary redundancy when their positions became excess due to functional changes in the workplace.

(2) 52 temporary contracts ceased from 1 July 2008 to 31 March 2009.

The usual basis of employment in the ACT Public service is permanent employment. A temporary would only be engaged if a permanent officer is not available with the necessary expertise, skills or qualifications, or assistance of a temporary nature is required to complete urgent or specialised work.

Temporary contracts are not automatically renewed, therefore it would be the normal course that the temporary employee ceases when their contract expires.

(3) From data available on 20 April 2009 the numbers of unfilled positions was 36. Recruitment on eight of these positions has been completed to date.

(4) None.
