About the Levels of Government in New South Wales

In Australia our government is broken into three levels; Commonwealth (or Federal) Government, State/Territory Government and Local Government. Every single level accounts for it's individual industrial relations and they because of this keep control of and recruit their work force independently. Every level of government and the way they conduct their recruitment is described in more detail following.

The Commonwealth (or Federal) Government implements laws and regulations created by the Federal Parliament. The Commonwealth Government's accountabilities are set out in the Australian Constitution and basically embody national matters, including trade and commerce, currency, immigration, defence, telecommunications and welfare. The Commonwealth Government is headed by a Prime Minister. Commonwealth Government agencies are found all over Australia, within urban and non-urban areas.
