Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and age management 

We value diversity and recognise that a diverse workforce enhances our decision making. We aim to recruit talent from diverse groups including First Nations peoples, those from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds, women, people of all ages and people with disabilities. Work adjustments can be made to support people with special requirements.

A core principle of Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) is to provide a workplace that is free from discrimination, bullying and harassment. Our EEO Management Plan is reviewed regularly and all new staff undertake EEO training as part of their induction.

Our Age Management Plan complements our EEO Management Plan. It guides the Council and its employees through workforce and demographic change, developing the career experience of people of all ages and all stages of life..

For further information: see the EEO Management Plan and Age Management Plan.
