Aboriginal employment

Agriculture Victoria is committed to being an employer of choice for Aboriginal people.

Our work to recruit more Aboriginal people is guided by DJPR’s Aboriginal Recruitment and Career Development Strategy 2020–2023, which was developed by Aboriginal staff from across the department.

We are working to grow and develop our Aboriginal workforce by offering culturally safe and diverse roles. We want to ensure our work strengthens and positively connects with Aboriginal people. We also recognise that Aboriginal people’s cultural knowledge, skills and expertise are integral to our work.

Agriculture Victoria is committed to cultural safety within our workplace and all staff are encouraged to undertake cultural safety training. Agriculture Victoria’s leadership team has also committed to deepening their knowledge of the historical and ongoing impacts of agriculture in Aboriginal Victorian communities.

Agriculture Victoria’s Aboriginal staff are encouraged and supported to join the DJPR Aboriginal staff network. This network enables all Aboriginal staff within the department to connect in a culturally safe environment.
