Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment
Council is proud of its commitment to Indigenous employment and currently has approximately 16.4% of our workforce identifying as being of Aboriginal descent (as at 30 June 2017).
We are pleased to promote the fact that Aboriginal people are represented across all levels and areas of Council and achieve great outcomes in terms of career development and retention.
Council is committed to our Aboriginal Employment Strategy which focuses on the future development and inclusion of Aboriginal people in our workforce. We support “The Way Ahead for Aboriginal People” program which provides mentoring services for Aboriginal apprentices and trainees who need additional support in the workplace.
From time-to-time, Aboriginal Identified School Based Traineeships are available and these are promoted through schools around the Shire.
Please contact your School Career Advisor for more information.
