Our organisational structure

The Department is structured to deliver its business through the Executive and three business groups—the Employment Cluster, the Workplace Relations and Economic Strategy Cluster, and the Corporate Cluster. The Department’s organisational structure at 30 June 2017 is shown in Figure 1. The Secretary established the Deputy Secretary Corporate position in February 2017, following machinery of government changes in December 2016 which saw the return of a large number of corporate functions to direct control of the Department.
