Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Roles

The Australian Bureau of Statistics acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia where we work, learn and live. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community, and pay our respects to their cultures and Elders, 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 scientists, data collection, human resources, information and technology, communications, survey design and engagement.

See our Current Job Vacancies for roles currently available.

Where are the ABS offices located?

We have offices in Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney, Darwin, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Melbourne, Dandenong and Geelong. 

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, Yakeen, 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).
