The Australian Public Service Commission is launching an updated website for job seekers in the public service.
The new APSJobs digital platform has a refreshed look and an improved user experience, according to the APS Commission.
While functionality is consistent with the old website, there have been some necessary improvements. For example, the new platform is responsive to different smart devices. The mobile-friendly platform features an easy search and subscribe functionality for people looking for jobs in the APS.
It also provides an agency portal that allows staff to advertise and report on recruitment activity in their respective agency and portfolio. FAQs have also been added to help users understand processes, including how they can create their own accounts, change their passwords, save searches, and receive alerts.
Users will be able to give feedback on the updated website in the coming weeks, the APS Commission notes.
“We want to know how we can improve people’s experience, and make it easier for people to apply for jobs in the APS, no matter where they are located,” it says.
“We acknowledge there will, like any new website, be a few bugs to iron out in the first few weeks, and welcome assistance from users to help us identify areas that need to be addressed.”
The site will go live on Thursday, January 16.
