Employee Placement Strategy

State Transit’s Employee Placement Strategy has been developed with Transport for NSW in consultation with the NSW Government.

It aligns with the NSW Government Sector Placement Strategy and aims to provide affected employees with the best possible opportunities for placement in roles:

  • with the new private operator;
  • within Transport for NSW via the current Evolving Transport reform program; and
  • within the Transport cluster and the broader Government Sector using relevant mobility and transfer provisions.

Important points to note

  • The primary aim of the Employee Placement Strategy is to place affected employees in roles.
  • The Managing Excess Employees Procedure is only activated when the Employee Placement Strategy has been exhausted, as determined by State Transit and Transport for NSW.

    In line with NSW Government guidelines and legislation, no redundancy payments will be made to you if:


  • you are offered comparable employment through the matching process for roles within the broader public sector or other roles within Transport (not through Evolving Transport);
  • and decline the offer; or are notified of comparable employment with an incoming operator and fail to apply or decline an offer.

    Please note: This does not apply to any roles that you may be offered during the Evolving Transport process.The following information outlines what the Employee Placement Strategy looks like and what each of the options mean for you.
