Indigenous graduates at the ABS

The ABS encourages applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our workplace culture is inclusive, respectful and embraces diversity.  

At the ABS you can contribute to change by generating and 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. There are many areas you can work in the ABS, including corporate and strategy, innovation, research and design, technology and security, and data and statistics. 

We are looking for graduates with a passion for working with data, but we also offer placements in corporate roles including HR, communications, finance, accounting, and ICT.

Working at the ABS offers you the best of both worlds. Balance working from home with time in our offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Geelong, Darwin, Perth, Canberra, Adelaide, or Hobart. Our flexible working arrangements mean you can keep doing the things you love outside of work, like care for family or playing sports. 

Our inclusive workplace culture gives you the opportunity to be a part of various social employee networks. This includes the Yakeen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employee Network, helping you stay connected and develop new meaningful connections across the country and work areas. 

The ABS is a place where your culture is embraced. You can contribute, participate, and grow through initiatives like NAIDOC Week and National Reconciliation Week celebrations, our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and First Nations Career Development Program. The ABS also offers a public holiday substitution scheme to give you the opportunity to participate in days of cultural, ceremonial, or religious significance.
