The Department of Health would like to invite all eligible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people looking for a career in the Australian Public Service to apply in their Graduate Development Program Affirmative Measures (Indigenous) recruitment process.
The Department of Health recognises and values the diverse and extensive knowledge and skills and experiences that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees bring and commit to increasing opportunities for professional and personal development.
The Department’s vision is to build a culturally safe and aware workplace environment that is built on mutually respectful relationships and appreciation. Greater cultural understanding within the Department will ensure we are appropriately delivering effective health policies and programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples nationally. We also seek to celebrate the importance of identity, community and shared knowledge in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, values and life.
We recognise and value the diverse and extensive knowledge and skills and experiences that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees bring to Health and commit to increasing opportunities for professional and personal development.
The Department has an in-house Cultural Appreciation Program (CAP) which is designed to give employees a greater appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders culture, customs and traditions as well as providing tools and techniques to communicate and engage effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Our 2017-19 Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) will continue to help us contribute towards a reconciled Australia, in which all Australians understand and value the cultures, experiences and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Reconciliation is an ongoing endeavour, and all Health employees have an important role to play in advocating and delivering on all outcomes in the RAP.
The Department’s National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Staff Network (NATSISN) is an informal peer network, run by employees who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff members. It aims to welcome, orient and support new and existing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff. The NATSISN is also an informal resource for all Health staff to seek information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues. NATSISN also has an affiliate membership called Friends of the Network which is an opportunity for non-Indigenous staff to show their commitment to reconciliation, and to learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and communities.
The NATSISN is supported by Senior Executive Champions who provide support to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce, the NATSISN and its initiatives, and contribute to celebrating and recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures in the Department.
