The proportion of Permanent Temporary (Casual employees) in the department who are women, excluding Arm’s Length Bodies, as of 30 September 2023 was 63%. The proportion was calculated by the number of female staff on temporary contracts divided by the total number of staff on temporary contracts at the department.

The department does not have a temporary promotion policy. When staff work at a grade above, they receive Temporary Additional Responsibility Allowance and not a temporary contract.
