NWRH continue their position of filling staff vacancies in service delivery with Indigenous Australian peoples where possible. Whilst NWRH has historically adopted this approach informally, this is now formalised as the NWRH Indigenous Employment Strategy.

The NWRH Indigenous Employment Strategy is a formal policy with procedures that prescribe a consistent approach to guard standards of best practice. In real time this means that Indigenous Australians are strongly encouraged to apply for all employment positions at NWRH. In some cases employment opportunities will be identified as positions to be filled by Indigenous Australians.

The Indigenous Employment Strategy (IES) is a sub-policy of the policy covering recruitment of all NWRH staff and will sit alongside any statement or strategy related to NWRH being an Equal Opportunity Employer. The IES will also ‘identify’ positions as Indigenous Australian pursuant to the provision of legislation within Federal (https://www.humanrights.gov.au/guide-australias-anti-discrimination-laws#hreoca) and State legislation (http://www.adcq.qld.gov.au/resources/brochures-and-guides/fact-sheets)

The NWRH Indigenous Employment Strategy (policy) focuses on three key areas of employment:

  1. Recruitment and Retention of Indigenous Australian Employees across all levels of employment;
  2. Development of Indigenous Australian employees;
  3. Development of Indigenous Cultural Competency for Non-Indigenous employees.
