Working in Councils

Diversity and Inclusion

Australia is a vibrant, diverse, multi-cultural country. This diversity is central to our country’s identity.

Local Government understands that building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the people we serve is integral to creating thriving, sustainable communities.

We are open to, and actively encourage applications from all candidates regardless of gender, age, language, ethnicity, cultural background, disability, religious belief, sexual orientation, working style, educational level, professional skills, work experience, socio-economic background, marital status and/or family or caring responsibilities.

We celebrate and value all our employees, and we recognise that it is our differences that enable us to make a real, lasting difference in communities across Australia.

As a workforce serving the community, we welcome:

Culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds

Indigenous Australians

People with special needs

Workers of all ages and sexual orientations
