With training and development to grow your skills and knowledge and opportunities for experience in a variety of areas you are sure to find interest and challenge. For those already working in the public sector, there is also the possibility of inter-department transfers. Staff are encouraged to experience working in different areas and learning new skills.
Learning at the IRC
It’s important for us that we provide a wide range of appropriate and effective learning and development opportunities that enable our people to do their jobs well. We believe that learning is a journey, with changing needs along the way, and we encourage and support our people to take advantage of the many opportunities available.
We provide successful applicants with access to a training programme and opportunities to gain their practical experience requirements while working with us. We are committed to investing directly in our peopleâ€™s development through internal and external programmes in PNG and overseas.
Qualifications and Study
We support staff studying for qualifications relevant to their role both financially and by allowing time away from work.
Our leaders are highly important to IRC and our success in delivering services for our customers. Consequently we support programmes for leadership development by identifying future leaders, funding leadership development programmes and providing higher duty opportunities.
Our on-line course, Learn Key, gives access to a wide range of training courses. Staff at all levels are able to work at their own pace to develop knowledge and skills necessary for their work.
Our employment relationship and benefits for staff
We base our employment relationship with our people on these principles:
We support, guide and meet these principles through our:
Code of Conduct which sets out the standards of integrity and behaviour required of our people as public servants and IRC employees. The code builds on the minimum requirements and expectations set out in the Public Service Code of Conduct and reflects the legislation applying to public servants and specifically to IRC employees.
Human Resources Manual which provides managers, team leaders and staff with guidelines relating to day-to-day employment and issues such as hours of work, expenses, allowances and leave.
We also recognise that there’s more to life than just work. We’re interested in getting the right balance between work and personal obligations and endeavour to accommodate arrangements that make it easier for our employees to do this, for example, through flexible working hours.
