Aboriginal Workforce​​

Western NSW Local Health District (WNSWLHD) acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land in the WNSWLHD region. We pay respect to past, present and future Elders of this land: the Wiradjuri, Wailwan, Kamilaroi, Wongaibon, Ngemba, Barranbinya, Muruwari, Gunu, Barundji and Barindji peoples.

We recognise diversity and the value that it brings in reflecting the communities we serve. We aspire to continue to create a skilled Aboriginal workforce that ensures we provide culturally safe programs and services that meet the needs of Aboriginal people and positively impact on their health outcomes. 

Our Local Health District is collectively working on initiatives to grow, empower and support our Aboriginal workforce across clinical, non-clinical and leadership roles, including through targeted recruitment, cadetships, scholarships, professional development and career pathway opportunities. 

With a strong commitment to Closing the Gap on the employment status between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, we have “identified” and “targeted” roles to create a workforce and health service that affirms and welcomes Aboriginal culture and values.

We’re excited to share that our opportunities and training pathways are always expanding and below, job applicants will find tools to start building their careers with us.
