Indigenous

Our commitment to Indigenous participation

Broadspectrum has made a significant commitment to working with Indigenous Australians by providing assistance with education and employment opportunities. Our Indigenous Participation Approach aims to deliver meaningful cultural recognition, employment, education and training opportunities for Indigenous people and their communities.

Broadspectrum launched our first Indigenous Participation Strategy in 2007. In 2009 we achieved a key milestone when Australia’s then Deputy Prime Minister, the Hon. Julia Gillard, launched the Broadspectrum’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). As leaders in taking action towards reconciliation, our 2012-2014 RAP has been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia as an Elevated RAP. Our proven track record includes the following:

  • 4.5 per cent Indigenous employment, compared to a national average of 1.7
  • Implementation of Indigenous Participation Plans at 40 contracts
  • Investing in the local community, with 88 per cent local employment and 76 per cent local procurement
  • Human resource procedures updated to support Indigenous employment and retention

Disability

Providing opportunities for people with a disability

Our focus on equality and diversity means that as well as supporting many organisations that assist people with disabilities, Broadspectrum has also made a long-term commitment to employing those with disabilities across many of our projects. We are also committed to providing work experience opportunities for students with disabilities.

Gender equality

A proven commitment to equality for all

Broadspectrum has a proven track record for creating a diverse workforce, with gender equality being a cornerstone. For many years we have recognised the importance of diversity and made a big commitment to ensuring equal opportunity throughout all areas of our business. We are proud to say that many of our positions of leadership are held by women, and we aim to ensure females in the business are empowered to achieve their highest potential here. We encourage women of all ages and experience to discover how we can support you in every way.
