Performance pay

The department made no performance payments in 2017–18.

Non-salary benefits

The Department of Human Services Enterprise Agreement 2017–2020 provides for a range of allowances for staff who meet eligibility criteria. For example, social workers can claim reimbursement for professional association membership fees associated with the performance of their duties.

Staff can access salary sacrifice benefits, including additional superannuation and leased motor vehicles. Non-salary benefits can include a health insurance discount and a public transport loan scheme. Staff also have access to business tools, such as mobile phones and mobile computing devices, if there is a business requirement.

SES staff have car parking at their local office and a vehicle allowance or a vehicle to use for business and private purposes.

Senior executive service remuneration

The Secretary establishes salary ranges for SES staff, based on:

Table 79: Salary ranges for SES classifications

SES Band 3

  1. The salary ranges in the table cover base salary rates only. They do not include motor vehicles, reportable fringe benefits or other allowances. These ranges are indicative, as the Secretary may approve salary rates outside them.

The Secretary reviews salaries for individual SES staff each year after the end of the annual performance cycle.

As well as individual performance, the Secretary takes into account factors such as organisational performance, comparable remuneration data, and the size and complexity of the role.

Individual employment arrangements

The following industrial instruments have been used to establish conditions of service for the department’s staff.
