Recruitment and Selection Policy

Cumberland Council is an equal employment opportunity employer and values the diversity of its workforce. It is Council policy to select the most suitable applicant for each vacant position on the basis of job-related selection criteria. An individual's race, sex, age, disability, marital status, sexual preference or membership of an ethnic or minority group will not reduce his/her chances of employment.

As part of valuing our diverse workforce, Council encourages applicants with relevant community languages to apply for vacant positions. Furthermore, applicants with a disability are encouraged to apply for vacant positions.

Cumberland Council also values the skills and experience of former ADF personnel. The Veterans Employment Program is able to assist veterans in interpreting their skills against the NSW Capability Framework if required. For more information visit:
