Victoria Legal Aid

First Nations employment strategy

Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy 2020–25 supports our Reconciliation Action Plan.

Under our Reconciliation Action Plan, we aim to significantly increase the number of First Nations staff in our workforce. First Nations staff contribute to culturally safe practice and bring valuable perspectives to the design and delivery of services.

We have a genuine commitment to the principles of reconciliation and self-determination. We want to build a workforce that understands the needs and interests of the clients we serve. We also want to be an employer of choice for First Nations people.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy 2020–25 has three priority areas:

  1. increase the number of First Nations staff at Victoria Legal Aid
  2. ensure that we have a culturally safe and inclusive workplace
  3. improve the retention and professional development of First Nations staff.
