I'm already in the Australian Public Service

I'd like a new challenge in my current job

Sometimes we like the place we're working but simply want to do something that will push us out of a rut, or our 'comfort zone'. Take responsibility for yourself and talk to your supervisor about options for new challenges in your current job.

Your options might include:

  • Supervising or buddying a colleague
  • Reviewing existing or developing new procedures
  • Inducting new staff members
  • Designing or conducting training for other staff
  • Working as part of a team on a special project
  • Swapping jobs with someone else or a rotation within the team
  • Fixing up a recurring problem
  • Setting up a new system
  • Evaluating or reviewing services or product
  • Assisting on an internal or external audit
