Inclusion and diversity

We are building a department that is both diverse and inclusive.

We’re particularly interested in future employees from Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples background. We also welcome applicants who live with a disability and/or are from a culturally and linguistically diverse background, and people who identify as LGBTIQ+.

The door is open for everyone – just know that our expectation is that you actively contribute to an inclusive workplace and take personal responsibility for cultural capability.

We want everyone to feel respected and connected at work and we genuinely embrace diversity. We know that having diverse people with diverse backgrounds and identities makes for a better workplace.

Our Yhurri Gurri framework

Our Yhurri Gurri framework and participation plan is about committing to work closely with Aboriginal businesses and Torres Strait Islander businesses, communities, and peoples. We think everyone should be accountable for knowing and respecting different cultures.

We have internal groups and networks to support our employees and promote diversity and inclusion.

Disability service plan

Our departmental Disability Service Plan ( 392.7 KB) complements the State Disability Plan and outlines our commitment to diversity and respect for individuals. *** This plan is being updated for our new department following the 2020/2021 government department restructures.***
