Australian governments are actively working to reinvent the public sector for the digital age. The goal is to create a sector that can meet the public’s ever-increasing expectation for fast and personalised government services while keeping the nation safe from new cyber threats.

The key to successfully navigating this is to focus on the people needed to make change a reality. We have compiled the Australian Public Sector Report to explore how the public sector can compete for talent in key areas by looking at the activity of professionals on LinkedIn.

Key findings of the report are:

  • The public sector is seeing a loss of talent to the private sector; over the past year, 1.8 times the number of professionals on LinkedIn moved from the public sector to the private sector than the other way
  • The much needed digital-related specialists are disproportionally located in major cities and are more interested in finding a job where they can make an impact, which can be a perfect fit for the public sector
  • 70% of Australia's professionals are not actively looking for a job, but are open to talking to a recruiter and should be considered when hiring for in demand Public Sector Roles
