Indigenous Graduates

We are committed to employing and retaining Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander graduates to apply through our annual graduate recruitment process.

The department seeks to enhance strong working relationships with Indigenous veterans and relevant Australian Government departments and agencies so that it is positioned to:

  • Assist in the ongoing work of identifying Indigenous veterans and their dependents to facilitate their access to services and entitlements
  • Assist in gaining recognition of the contribution to the nation by Indigenous veterans through their service
  • Recruit and provide ongoing support, and learning and development opportunities, for Indigenous employees.
