Would you work for the public service in ICT over a private gig?
Yesterday, the Australian Government released an ICT workforce strategy in an effort to fight an ageing workforce and promote new hires amongst government departments over the next three years.
The plan is the latest in a spate of whole-of-government IT reforms initiated by the release of the Gershon report, and are expected to aid major government projects including the National Broadband Network, Service Delivery Reform and the Government 2.0 Taskforce reforms.
Under the plan, entitled Whole-of-government ICT strategic workforce plan 2010-2013, the government would hire newly graduated IT workers through cadetship programs and hire professionals through links with the Australian Computer Society.
Our question to you is, would you work for the public service in ICT over a private gig?
Here are the results of last week’s poll in answer to the question: Should the Federal Government bother with a review of the ATO Change Program?
Yes, it has been one problem after another - 50%
No, it's already been audited and won't result in anything new - 38%
I'm not really worried either way - 12%
