We want Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander graduates in our program to become part of the ACT Government. Your heritage, experiences and talent can help us develop and deliver culturally appropriate services to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community of over 5000 people here in the ACT.

We are committed to deliver Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services that are culturally appropriate and delivered sensitively as we continue to implement the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Agreement, Reconciliation Action Plans, caring for Ngunnawal land and working with the Elected Body.
