Department for Communities and Social Inclusion

Aboriginal employment

The Department for Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI) welcomes and values the professional expertise, cultural knowledge and life experience that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people bring to the workplace.

DCSI is committed to increasing their participation across all classifications and divisions within the Department and in retaining those employees through building a workplace that is inclusive and respectful of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.

Employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people has been directly linked to many benefits including:

  • improved access and outcomes for clients
  • increased cultural competency of service delivery
  • increased cultural knowledge and competency of non-Aboriginal staff.

DCSI offers flexible working arrangements and is developing culturally inclusive work environments to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait employees to better meet their work and family obligations.

In addition to general vacancies, DCSI offers a further avenue for Aboriginal and Torres Strait people to gain employment with the Department.

Aboriginal employment pool

The pool provides an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates to be considered for a range of roles within DCSI as they arise and before they are advertised to the rest of the sector.
