Are you an ACT Public Servant? If so the Assembly Secretariat Wants You!
The Work in the Assembly program (WITA) offers placements of between three and six months to of?cers in the ACT Public Service as a professional development opportunity. The fully-funded program is intended to give ACT public servants exposure to the parliamentary process in an apolitical setting and the opportunity to learn more about the roles and functions of the parliament.
The Assembly Secretariat has been involved in the Graduate Administrative Assistant program for many years, with graduates who have completed placements in the Assembly, reporting a range of benefits in terms of improved understanding of the democratic process and the connection that exists between the parliamentary secretariat and the wider public service.
The WITA program seeks to extend this opportunity to of?cers at the ASO 5 to SOG C levels. Participants in the program will have an opportunity to experience ? rst-hand how the democratic process is supported by the work of the Assembly Secretariat and the legislative, accountability and representative functions performed by the legislature and its committees.
Knock yourselves out.
