Our vision is to help make bigger things happen for our customers, our team and community.  We’re a fast paced, growing, innovative and inspiring Australian brand with a strong focus on growing and developing our people. We are excited to announce an opportunity for an Aboriginal Community Liaison to join our growing Diversity and belonging team, based at our Support Office in East Bentleigh.

Reporting to the Diversity and Belonging Manager, this dynamic national role has a strong focus on building secure, sustainable relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia, with the purpose to learn from, work with, support and acknowledge their rights on the land we work.

As the Aboriginal Community Liaison, you will assist in setting up and managing the Officeworks Employment Pathways Program to attract, retain and develop Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders across the business network. This will include supporting the recruitment team to help create an employer brand that appeals to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants and partnering with mentors and agencies to recruit and train potential candidates.

Our ideal candidate will demonstrate exceptional communication, negotiation and interpersonal skills.

Preferably, you will have previous experience in creating a RAP and be comfortable in the end to end development of training programs.

As this is a national role, the successful candidate might be required to travel. As this role is an identified Aboriginal position, only persons of such nationality may be considered.

Apply now and take the first step toward exploring how you can make bigger things happen in your career and your community.
