Aboriginal employment

+Relationships+Opportunities=Ideal workplace

We developed a Victorian local government Aboriginal employment framework to assist Victoria’s 79 councils increase their employment of Aboriginal people.

Our framework overview sets out the rationale, main actions required by councils and the Aboriginal community.

Our latest report of the MAV Aboriginal Employment Project shows small but steady rises over the last three years. However, the numbers are starting from a low base given the large workforce employed by Victorian councils, and there continues to be significant scope and potential for greater inroads to be made.
