Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Workforce
Macquarie University's commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce development extends to all facets of our operations.
The vision of our inaugural Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Workforce Plan 2018–2021 (the Workforce Plan) is to develop and implement a whole-of University long-term strategy, which will significantly improve employment and career outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff and enhance their opportunities to contribute to all aspects of the University, thereby contributing directly to the aspiration of excellence at our University.
Gain relevant experience through a cadetship whilst studying!
The Cadetship Program offers a unique opportunity for Macquarie's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to gain paid practical work experience that is relevant to their degree and in their chosen field of study.
Our individualised approach to this program allows students to complete work placements across corporate, not for profit, and community organisations, such as ANZ, Redfern Legal Centre and Johnson and Johnson Medical, providing opportunities for cadets to develop relationships with national and international organisations.
To find out more and to apply for the Cadetship Program, contact our Aboriginal Workforce Development Coordinator.
