Employment and training

To better engage Aboriginal community members in managing natural resources in the region, Natural Resources Alinytjara Wilurara (AW):

  • contributes to the economic development of the communities we work in and, when possible, uses local resources
  • provides skills development through training and mentoring, where capacity is limited
  • supports land management work by overseeing contract-based employment.

Natural Resources AW has committed to increasing Indigenous employment, training and engagement outcomes within our programs by five per cent per year. This target will be met through increasing the different types of employment opportunities available and supporting the development of career pathways for Aboriginal people.

Employment

Natural Resources Alinytjara Wilurara's, Employment, Training and Procurement Strategy directly links pathways toward employment for Aboriginal people.
