Approved supplier

IPA is an approved supplier across a number of government staffing panels and contracts. We also provide expert recruitment services to various local, state and federal governments and agencies, across Australia. 

IPA provides executive, permanent, temporary, contract, labour hire and diversity & inclusion recruitment services. All include the option of unbundled services and scribing services.

We are experts at sourcing and placing exceptional talent into a wide range of roles across all levels of government. 

Experienced recruitment professionals

IPA understands the government and Australian Public Sector (APS) recruitment environment. We have developed this understanding through our:

  • Experience in supplying to federal government agencies
  • Adherence to APS principles and guidelines required under Public Sector Employment & Management Act (PSEMA)
  • Extensive experience working for and supplying to government agencies.

Our process

We have aligned our selection process and policies with public sector values. We can assist you in making defensible hiring decisions that comply with legislation.

Our network of IPA branches across Australia is consistently building and maintaining candidate talent pools across a range of roles. We ensure candidates are qualified, have demonstrated experience, and have the right security clearance (where required). 

We understand that when we communicate with our candidates it needs to be transparent, realistic and backed up with sufficient record. 

We also know that when we recruit on behalf of government, the experience those candidates have with IPA reflects on government departments and public sector agencies.

Diversity and Inclusion recruitment

Our dedicated national IPA Diversity & Inclusion team runs a range of bespoke programs to help government find exceptional talent, and candidates find meaningful and lasting employment.

Since 2009 we’ve been working with, and recruiting, quality candidates from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds and cohorts. These include:

  • Indigenous people
  • Neurodiverse people 
  • People with a disability.


Social enterprise

IPA is a social enterprise recruitment agency. This means 100% of our profits go to our not-for-profit parent company genU. genU supports people with a disability and people from a disadvantaged background to reach their full potential.  

As government departments and agencies look to engage more social enterprises, IPA can help you deliver on your business goals and social procurement commitments.
