Since the commencement of the CUA 10410 (2010) contract, AMARecruit personnel have been actively involved in delivering Recruitment and Human Resource Consultancy Services to several Western Australian government departments.  During this period, the AMARecruit team have been required to consistently demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the regulatory framework that applies to recruitment in the WA public sector through the implementation of commitment to policy and process; as well as complying with legislative requirements in the context of professional service delivery.
AMARecruit provides Human Resource support to WA state and local government authorities, in line with Public Sector Standards and Local Government Acts with regard to recruitment, selection and appointment. Through effective, ongoing stakeholder consultation and engagement, these services have been undertaken and delivered to a high level, meeting the expectations of the client at all times.

This also includes Senior Executive Service (SES) and Board selections. 
Our consultants have considerable experience in working with our Public Sector partners, carrying out responsibilities such as:

AMARecruit’s skilled consultants utilise clear, transparent processes to ensure an objective audit trail is available throughout each assignment. When assessing information, they complete logical comparisons of data using a rating scale to clearly highlight their approach. Consultants regularly consult with their clients and provide progress updates to ensure project clarity and equanimity.  

Whilst taking into consideration such principles, our consultants are aware that Departments and Agencies have differing needs and objectives. They are therefore able to implement flexibility to ensure individual client needs are met throughout each consignment.
