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.

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.


You can apply for this program if you:

  • are a Banyule resident
  • face barriers to suitable and meaningful employment
  • identity as a member of 1 or more of the the following community groups:
    • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
    • culturally and linguistically diverse people
    • people living with a disability
    • young people (age 16-25).

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