Fixed-term appointments are for a specific term or period for which there is a start and finish date. The contract must fall into the category of one of the fixed-term contract types described in the Enterprise Agreement.
The employee’s letter of appointment will specify the starting and finishing dates of that employment, or, in lieu of a finishing date, will specify the circumstances or contingency relating to a specified task or project, upon the occurrence of which the term of employment will expire.
Fixed-term appointments up to 12 months can be made by direct appointment, based on merit.
Fixed-term appointments of more than 12 months must be selected by a competitive, merit-based process.
