Aboriginal services

If you're an Aboriginal person looking to get into training, find employment or further your career there is a range of culturally sensitive training, employment and career support services available to assist you.   

Your local Jobs and Skills Centre has experience helping  Aboriginal jobseekers in Western Australia choose a training course or find their career path and employment.

If you're an employer looking for resources, advice or support on recruitment and retention strategies to make your workplaces and employment practices more culturally sensitive and welcoming to Aboriginal people, we can help.

"I was looking for a change and opportunity to build on my career when I contacted the team at my local Jobs and Skills Centre.

They connected me with employment opportunities and assisted with the application process. Since then I have successfully secured a job with a top tier employer and would encourage more of my mob to access this service."

Aboriginal services jobs board

Jobs and Skills Centres  work with employers all over Western Australia to find employment opportunities for Aboriginal people, and post them on the Aboriginal services jobs board.

For jobseekers, there's a great range of vacancies to browse through, from casual or part-time work through to full time positions in a range of areas including the WA public sector (Government). You can also register with the jobs board – free of charge – and you will receive an email notification whenever a job vacancy comes up that matches what you're looking for. Plus you'll get an online space where you can save your CV/resumé, references, job applications or portfolio.

For employers, you can advertise your vacancies for free on the Aboriginal services jobs board and even use it to help manage the recruitment process.
