We now offer you an opportunity to hear from an incredible panel (see below) about the WA Public Sector Leadership Framework and a case study in its application. 

We welcome the Public Sector Commissioner, Sharyn O'Neill, to the session to the discuss leadership capability development and how it has been matched to the recruitment process for the refreshed Investment and Trade network run by the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Industry. 

Attend this session to enhance your understanding of where and how you can link your experience to the framework as you advance your career.

The immediate benefit, to your existing and future organisations in attending this session, is that you will return to work with a renewed and refreshed focus on performing to your highest level as you pursue wider or higher levels of responsibility. In the longer term, you will be a stronger team contributor through your pursuit of greater mastery of these skills in the WA Public Sector leadership framework.

Appointments to the Investment and Trade Commissioner positions are made under a secondment model within the Western Australian public sector and require successful candidates to demonstrate capabilities such as strategic policy experience, the ability to build productive relationships, good communication skills, stakeholder engagement expertise and effective leadership skills.

These critical skills overlap with the Western Australian Public Sector leadership capability areas of:

  • shapes and manages strategy
  • achieves results
  • builds productive relationships
  • exemplifies personal integrity and self-awareness
  • communicates and influences effectively.

Serving in an overseas trade office is one of many exciting leadership and career opportunities available to WA public service professionals, and our upcoming session on 19 October, Forging your Leadership Journey, will explore these opportunities in depth. 

The session also brings together a panel of speakers lead by Rebecca Brown, Director General of the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation, the recently appointed Agent General, John Langoulant AO, and four Investment and Trade Commissioners.
