Valuing Difference - Respecting Our People
We are a dynamic, people-focused organisation where workplace diversity and inclusion is important to create a productive and harmonious environment for people to work. The department promotes a culture where Indigenous business is everyone's business across its work practices, values and business. We welcome applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, mature-age people and people with disability, regardless of sex, sexuality or gender identity.
Many of our policies and programs celebrate diversity and tackle discrimination and bullying, and we continue to build on these initiatives through our Diversity Champion, Indigenous Champion, Indigenous Leader, Employee Support Officers (ESO) and Employee Networks.
