he NCIE is a wholly owned subsidiary of the ILSC. At 30 June 2020, NCIE had 110 employees (head count) (2018–19: 110 headcount) all of whom are in New South Wales. The NCIE executives are engaged on Individual Common Law Contracts. The NCIE employees, subject to positions held, are engaged on either Individual Common Law Contracts or Individual Employment Agreements with terms and conditions reflective of the relevant Modern Award.

The majority (66 per cent) of NCIE employees are engaged on a casual basis which is reflective of the types of industries operating from the NCIE site. Benefits provided under these agreements include an employee assistance program, gym membership, learning and development, and salary-sacrificing provisions.
