Diversity and inclusion

Our commitment to making our workplace fully inclusive and accessible for everyone.

Council is committed to ensuring that equal employment opportunities (EEO) are observed and people with equal skills and qualifications have an equal chance of obtaining employment with Council. An individual's race, sex, age, disability, marital status, sexual preference or membership of an ethnic or minority group will not reduce their chances of employment.

We value EEO and Work Health Safety (WHS) practices, cultural diversity, ethical practices, a smoke-free work environment and are committed to ensuring that recruitment and selection is free from discrimination.

Council is focused on the delivery of our Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2022-2026, the creation of more liveable places and inclusive communities, recognising the rights and contributions of people with disability and championing diversity within the community.

We recognise that people with disability may face additional barriers in their search for sustainable and meaningful employment and are dedicated to providing assistance any way possible and are able to make reasonable adjustments to our staff.

Council encourages applicants with a disability, Veterans, and people with cultural backgrounds to apply for a position.

Should you require support during the recruitment process, you are able to contact the Council officer listed on the job advertisement or Human Resources on 8757 9000. We are committed to making reasonable adjustments to provide a positive, barrier-free recruitment process and supportive workplace.
