This Week’s Highlight: Recruitment and Search Services

Sourcing the right people for the job is an issue in every industry as skill shortages abound and recruitment becomes increasingly difficult. Government departments are no exception and this week we look at a Whole-of-Australian Government (WoAG) Panel for Recruitment and Search Services issued by the Department of Finance on behalf of all Commonwealth government agencies. This panel which will also includes labour hire and contractor services is collectively referred to as the People Panel.

The People Panel will be established through a series of coordinated procurements, undertaken in phases with each phase conducted through separate open approaches to market. The first phase in the People Panel series (this RFT) is for Recruitment and Search Services only which includes:

(a) General Recruitment Services;
(b) Executive Recruitment Services;
(c) Expert/Specialised Role Recruitment Services;
(d) Candidate Sourcing Services;
(e) Board Search Services.

Each procurement is independent and tenderers are not required to respond to each approach to market. The Recruitment and Search Panel is anticipated to commence by 1 July 2022, for an initial 4 year term with an option for extension up to 30 June 2030. This RFT closes on Monday 14 February 2022 with several industry briefings options available:

  • Virtual Session 1 – Monday 13 December
  • Canberra (in person)- Tuesday 14 December
  • Virtual Session 2 – Thursday 16 December
