How job opportunities are structured in the VPS
In the Victorian Public Service (VPS), jobs are organised according to classifications that reflect the value of the work performed. These are coded and described for reference purposes, and classifications are given salary ranges. The job or position description normally shows the salary range. Depending on the appointment, entry level job opportunities normally start at the minimum of the range.
Some of the classifications include a wide variety of occupations. For example, in the VPSG 1-6 grades you will find administrative roles such as in accounting or finance, economics and project management. You will also find legal, engineering, scientific and community corrections jobs.
In general, where the VPS classification has numbers after the code, this shows a classification structure. The number '1' is usually the lowest level in the classification, except for executives where 1 is the highest.
