Security and Background checks
New employees may be required to undergo an Australian Federal Police records check as part of ensuring their suitability as a fit and proper person for employment as an APS employee. Across the ACMA, there are positions which do require a security clearance. The need for a security clearance and the level will be identified within the position profile.
Further information regarding security clearances within the APS is available.
All new ongoing APS employees are subject to a period of probation. The probationary period enables the supervisor to assess the person's suitability for continued employment in the ACMA at the prescribed level.
Former staff of any APS agency or the Australian Parliamentary Service are excluded from employment with the ACMA until the redundancy benefit period resulting from any redundancy payment received from that employer has expired.
The exclusion period that applies is linked to the level of redundancy benefit received by the former employee. Further information regarding exclusion periods is provided on the APSC website.
New employees are required to meet the standard of health and physical fitness necessary to efficiently perform their duties. New employees are required to complete a Health Declaration and may be required to undergo a medical check.
Any claims you make with regard to academic and/or professional qualifications must be capable of being verified with the relevant institution. False claims could lead to withdrawal of an offer of employment or disciplinary action, including possible termination of employment.
