Public Sector Manager

Public sector managers complete the same types of tasks as managers in private industry however their financial focus is not on commercial profit and competition but rather managing the funding which they have been provided by the government. Policy, strategic direction and people management are key in this role, and while an educational background in business or management are well regarded, so are qualifications in other areas such as arts and social science. Entry into this type of role is often found through graduate programs and administrative positions where specific training is provided.
