Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Roles

The ABS acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures and to their elders both past, present and emerging.

What are you looking for?

At the ABS you can contribute to delivering data to inform important decisions that improve the economic, health and social opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities around Australia.

We have varied roles such as data analyst, data collection, human resources, information and technology, communications and survey design and engagement.

We pride ourselves on our flexible working arrangements, including working from home. Many of our teams are spread across locations so you could work in Darwin, with team members in Melbourne or Brisbane. 

How can the ABS support me?

We have a strong and well supported Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employee network, Youmpla, and our new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff are set up with a buddy.

We are committed to doing our part in the Reconciliation journey in Australia, including increasing our representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to reflect the communities and people we inform. You can read more about this in our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
