Appendix H-Additional human resource statistics

This appendix addresses the requirement for us to publish a range of human resource statistics. It includes:

  • a profile of our workforce by classification and location
  • a profile of our workforce by gender, tenure and hours of work
  • the salary scales available by classification
  • details of the extra salary payments made to non-Senior Executive Service (SES) staff on Australian workplace agreements (AWAs) in 2006-07.

These statistics include non-ongoing staff as at 30 June 2005, 2006 and 2007, but exclude inoperative and casual staff unless noted otherwise. The 86 staff on Christmas Island and seven staff on Cocos (Keeling) Islands, are employed under the administrative ordinances made under the Christmas Island Act 1958 and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands Act 1955, respectively, rather than the Public Service Act 1999.
