Australia Post is committed to supporting our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander community.

For 31 years, Australia Post has had a formal partnership with our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander communities. We began our first Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander employment program in 1988, and today the partnership is still going strong.

Currently we:

  • have a number of pathways into Australia Post, including a successful Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander traineeship program, internship program, work development programs and other pathways into employment such as the graduate program
  • have our largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce, providing employment to over 725 Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders
  • are a member of Supply Nation, a program which connects Australian corporate and government entities with Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander businesses

Through our employee cultural awareness and training program, we plan to ensure our employees receive support and development. This will increase their cultural respect and understanding of our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and communities.
