Overview

Aboriginal Jobs Together (AJT) was a partnership between the NSW Government, the Federal Government, National Disability Services, AbSec and non-government organisations, designed to maximise employment outcomes for Aboriginal Australians in the disability and community services sectors in NSW. The two-year joint venture supported Aboriginal employment in up to 40 non-government organisations delivering services for the NSW Government; and place 155 new Aboriginal cadets and trainees in the disability and community services sectors.

The Aboriginal cadets and trainees significantly enhanced the diversity of employees in the disability and community services sectors in NSW. Two key elements of AJT were to build the capacity of non-government organisations to develop new approaches to the recruitment, retention and development of Aboriginal staff, that addresses specific barriers to Aboriginal employment; and to provide workplace support and assistance that included Aboriginal mentoring.
