Growing leadership and talent at all levels requires a platform that will connect our efforts right across the Public Service.

SSC has worked with agencies to establish Talent Exchange, a talent management information system that provides Career Boards, agencies and individuals with access to a large, shared database of talent from across the sector. Talent Exchange is used to support system-wide talent management to ensure that we attract, identify, develop, deploy and retain great people. For the first time, leaders will benefit from utilising talent management data to support their careers outside their current agency. Talent Exchange will allow us to use this data to support the development and deployment of talent across the wider Public Service.

For more information, you can refer to:

  • Fact Sheet - Talent Exchange (PDF 674 KB) - This explains what Talent Exchange is for those wanting to know more.
  • Information protocols and privacy statementEligible individuals are asked to sign up to specific terms and conditions in Talent Exchange that explain who has access to what and why. This is useful to know more about the privacy and security settings in Talent Exchange.
  • Other toolsHere are other talent management and development tools that can be used to proactively drive your own career development.
