Inclusive employment

We run an inclusive employment program for local residents who face barriers to employment.

The program offers a 6-month job opportunity with us in a role tailored to an individual’s areas of interest, goals, strengths and ability.


Applications have now closed for the 2021 Inclusive Employment Program. The program will begin in late March.

Join our mailing list and be notified about future rounds of the program.


You can apply for this program if you:

  • are a Banyule resident
  • face barriers to suitable and meaningful employment
  • identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, culturally and linguistically diverse, living with disability or are a young person age 16-25.

We recognise that within these community groups, people may have overlapping identities or experiences. LGBTIQ people, women, older adults and people affected by the justice system who meet the above criteria are encouraged to apply.

Reasons to apply

As part of the program, you will:

  • make a difference in your local community
  • gain local government work experience and references
  • build on your strengths and skills in a role designed for you
  • be supported by an inclusive supervisor and team
  • receive individual coaching to set and achieve job and life goals
  • grow your social and professional connections.
