A targetedposition is a position with specific selection criteria that signify that the role has a strong involvement in issues relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Typically, these roles will involve direct interaction with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students, staff and communities.
In addition to offering mainstream and targeted employment opportunities, ACU successfully uses employment options such as traineeships and cadetships to provide options to create entry-level opportunities.
Managers can register to attend Hiring to Make a Change, a one-hour videoconference on 30 March or 9 May and explore the recruitment options available that can help to attract Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates.
