ACU has introduced a new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Graduate Recruitment Program to help ‘close the gap’ in employment outcomes.
The program is an initiative of the ACU Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Employment Strategy 2015-2017, which aims to achieve participation parity between our workforce and Australia’s Indigenous population.
The two-year program is being piloted within the Corporate Services portfolio and enables eligible ACU graduates to work across multiple Directorates on a rotational basis.
The University welcomes Tamika Baulch and Fiona Manoa, who are ACU’s inaugural recruits within the program.
Tamika has completed a Bachelor of Teaching/Bachelor of Arts (Humanities) and is based in Melbourne.
Tamika will work across Student Administration and Human Resources, rotating on a three-monthly basis. She says she is looking forward to learning about what happens ‘behind-the scenes’ to keep the University running smoothly.
“Being part of the Graduate program will open up my future career options and I see this as a great opportunity. I hope to learn the variety of different jobs that are in the professional section of a University as well as to explore my strengths and weaknesses in a professional setting,” Tamika said.
“I’ve found that the ACU community, both the student body and staff, is one full of support. My particular cohort (BT/BA) became very close and we became somewhat of a family throughout our degree.”
“I really feel my degree, past experience and the graduate program is my platform to reach greater heights and advance my career.”
