Office for Strategy and Performance Skills Register

The skills register provides the office with the flexibility to fill short term vacancies of up to 6 months as they arise. By establishing a pool of highly skilled individuals, it enables the office to recruit suitably skilled individuals within the SA Public Sector across a range of classification levels via a modified recruitment process.

About Office for Strategy and Performance

The Office for Strategy and Performance benefits all South Australian children and young people by ensuring legislation, policies, decisions and actions are based on robust evidence, rigorously evaluated and effectively communicated, thereby strengthening DECD as a high performing and forward-thinking organisation.

The office incorporates a diverse range of functions and strategic projects that traverse across intergovernmental relations, strategic communications, governance, policy development, strategic planning, performance analysis and reporting, data and economic analysis, research and evaluation and managing grants for non-government schools.


You must be permanent Australian residents or have a current work permit and must not have taken a separation package within the last 3 years. Individuals who satisfy the skills requirements are encouraged to apply for inclusion on the register. Eligible applicants will be considered for any short-term employment that arises.
