The Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) has been rated Australia’s number one public sector employer and the third ranked employer overall in a national study.

Celebrating the result, Secretary of DCJ, Michael Tidball said recruitment company Randstad Australia led the study of more than 6,000 people, who reviewed 75 public and private sector organisations and ranked them in terms of attractiveness.

“Staff at DCJ live by their values of service, trust, accountability, integrity and respect,” Mr Tidball said.

“Our values drive our work and commitment to delivering a high standard of service to benefit the community of NSW,” he said.

“We’re determined to strive to make DCJ an even better place to work.”

Mr Tidball said the Randstad Employer Brand Research was the largest independent employer brand study in the world and covered 10 key drivers of attractiveness, including meaningful work, career progression opportunities, job security and work life balance.

Acting Chief People Officer at DCJ, Catherine Carvolth said the study was a reflection of the strong and positive culture at DCJ.

“Employees in workplaces with values-led cultures are happier and more motivated, leading to better business and client outcomes, and this shines through in the findings of this study,” Ms Carvolth said.

“We are very proud to be recognised as the number one public sector employee in Australia and value our 24,000 staff, who make it such a great place to work.”
