Recruitment platforms – request for experience and insights

Hi everyone

AFSA is currently using Aurion for recruitment, however we are looking to either broaden the functions in Aurion or transition to a new system that is more fit for purpose and provides more of a positive and streamlined user experience.

To assist, we are keen to get an understanding and some insights on:

  • What function do you use in Aurion i.e. request to recruit, interview scheduling, referee checks, SAC report, outcome notification, onboarding etc. and how you find these from a panel/recruitment officer perspective
  • What other systems do you use e.g. HireRoad, Page up etc. and what your experience is with these. What are the challenges? Would you recommend?


If you can either send your recommendations by replying to this post or emailing them to that would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

Upcoming Changes to Non-ongoing Provisions

Hi All,

With the new regulations for Non-ongoing provisions coming into effect December this year which will limit the use of fixed term contracts for the same role beyond two years (including renewals) or two consecutive contracts. Would anyone able to share how your agency is going about implementing these changes?

We’re particularly interested in the management of this rollout for staff you have on contracts that will exceed two years come December. We have sought legal advice, but it would be great to bounce around ideas about how other agencies are planning to manage these changes.

It would be great to chat here on the forum so it’s visible to others, otherwise my email is

Thanks so much!
