About Indigenous Employment Australia
The Indigenous Employment Australia website aims to provide an important service for Indigenous job seekers and employers in Australia that are committed to increasing the level of employment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Our job search site promotes a wide range of job vacancies that are listed by employers who would like to encourage a greater number of applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander job seekers. We are proud of Australia’s skilled Indigenous workforce and believe that there are people throughout the country with the skills, experience, potential and passion for any opportunity.
Our work on the web began nearly ten years ago with the implementation of the atsijobs website and email jobs newsletter. Since then the site has grown to establish a regular reach of over 30,000 people throughout the country, which assists us to deliver up to date information and provide feedback to employers about their recruitment process.
Australian employers have often expressed interest in increasing the number of employees that identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people but they still have difficulty meeting their Indigenous recruitment targets. We have worked hard to improve the communication tools available to employers so that information about opportunities reaches Indigenous communities and job seekers in a timely manner.
After visiting communities around Australia, we discovered that many people in the cities, remote and regional Australia hadn’t heard about jobs that were being advertised on other websites, newspapers and media. To help address this issue we began to establish a strong social media presence to help increase our reach to an active network of job seekers to help employers spread the word about the jobs that they have available. We now maintain one of Australia’s largest online social networks for Indigenous job seekers, maintain top rankings for the most relevant job searches for Indigenous job seekers and are available to help people on the ground.
