Indigenous Employment

QUT’s Indigenous Employment Strategy (IES) outlines the University’s approach and commitment to increasing employment and development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The IES builds on the people focused considerations in Blueprint5 and its aims for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff representation to be 1.7 per cent of the total University workforce.

The intention of QUT’s IES is to build a high performing and sustainable cohort of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics, researchers, professional and senior staff through a multi-faceted and coordinated approach. To achieve this QUT, will invest in resources and strategies to attract, retain, support and develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent. This will be fortified by a workplace culture which understands, values and respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture.
