For what reasons are Housing Managers relocated;
For what reasons would a Housing Manager be moved from any location within the first 3 months of their appointment to a specific location;
Further to (3), has such a change occurred at any location in the last 2 years (since October 2001) and, if so, please specify the details of such location and the circumstances concerning such development;
In relation to a Housing Manager removed from a particular location due to issues concerning the performance of their duties, what process is followed in such circumstances concerning such Housing Manager, including their further employment within ACT Housing, if applicable.
Mr Wood: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
Housing Managers move positions for a wide range of reasons including promotion, extended leave, illness, higher duties, temporary incapacity and for developmental reasons. There are occasions where staff are rotated to fill gaps caused by any of the above and often temporary staff are employed to fill positions pending permanent recruitment. Housing Managers are ASO Grade 4 officers in the ACT Public Service and are subject to all the standard public service promotion, development and discipline arrangements. Therefore, any performance issues would be addressed in accordance with public service standards and procedures.
