People with a Disability
A commitment to equal opportunity employment
The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring its workforce is reflective of the community it serves. This includes increasing the employment of people with a disability and actively promoting awareness and understanding among government employers to create inclusive and diverse work environments.
We embrace inclusive employment as an equal opportunity employer. People with a disability are encouraged to apply for jobs in the Victorian Government. If you need help at any stage of the recruitment process contact the human resources branch in the department or agency, or the nominated contact officer for an advertised vacancy.
