​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Finding Aboriginal employees

Employing Aboriginal people makes good business sense.

Aboriginal employees add value to the diversity of your company by bringing fresh insights and new ideas that will help your business grow.

Traditionally, employees were found by placing an advertisement in a newspaper and hoping it came to the attention of the right people. Now there are many more ways to focus your search and find exactly who you are looking for. You can find excellent Aboriginal employees by:

  • getting in touch with recruitment agencies and other organisations that specialise in Aboriginal employment – like your local Jobs and Skills Centre;
  • developing relationships with your local Aboriginal community;
  • encouraging your current employees to engage their personal and professional networks;
  • getting involved in community activities;
  • advertising through Aboriginal media;
  • using social media like Facebook and LinkedIn; and
  • ​contacting local training organisations and service providers.
