About the Levels of Government in South Australia

Australia's government is separated down into three levels; Commonwealth (or Federal) Government, State/Territory Government and Local Government. Each level accounts for it's own personal industrial relations so they subsequently coordinate and hire their labourforce individually. Each level of government and how they recruit is described in greater detail following.

The Commonwealth (or Federal) Government The Commonwealth (or Federal) Government deploys legislation produced by the Federal Parliament. The Commonwealth Government's responsibilities are determined in the Australian Constitution and chiefly embody countrywide matters, for example industry and commerce, currency, immigration, defence, telecommunications and welfare. The Commonwealth Government is headed by the Prime Minister. Commonwealth Government divisions can be found almost everywhere in Australia, within urban and non-urban areas.

Victoria  All permanent plus some short term vacancies are publicised freely on this  website.

The State Government is mainly responsible for matters like police, schools, roads, hospitals, public housing and business regulation.A extremely comparable framework to the Commonwealth Government is noticed in the State Government, that is headed by a Premier. Positions in the State Government are situated all over the Northern Territory with the majority based in Adelaide

Local governments assist the state and are generally in the form of a council or shire. They are accountable for town planning, building works, local roads, parking, water and sewerage, waste disposal, domestic animals and community facilities. A council is headed by a Mayor. Local government places of work are found in each and every council or shire within the state.
