The Department of Employment offers career opportunities in a department that brings together people, policies and programmes to support the Australian Government’s initiatives on many important aspects of Australian life.
The department is committed to reconciliation and supports workplace diversity. It values the contributions of people with different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives and this is reinforced in our Diversity Strategy. Our commitment to Diversity is further demonstrated through the:
- Reconciliation Action Plan
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment and Career Plan

- Disability Action Plan
The department is also a Gold member of the Australian Network on Disability.
The department has appointed members of the Senior Executive Service to the roles of Indigenous Leader and Indigenous Champion, Disability Champion and Agency Multicultural Champion as a focus for progressing departmental action on diversity issues. As a further commitment to workplace diversity, the department has also established the Indigenous Staff Committee, the Disability Employee Network and are Gold members of the Australian Network on Disability.
The Department encourages and welcomes applications from Indigenous Australians, people with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and mature-age people.
