The ACU Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Graduate Recruitment Program is a two-year broad-based employment experience for eligible ACU graduates across at least two directorates within ACU's Corporate Services portfolio led by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Chief Operating Officer.
The program is one of the ways in which ACU is working to increase participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in employment at ACU, a commitment made by the University in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Employment Strategy and the ACU Staff Enterprise Agreement. For ACU, it enables us to develop professionals from within our own graduates and alumni and to show leadership in graduate employment in the higher education sector.
Those who undertake the graduate program work across two or three Corporate Services directorates.
Where possible, a placement will occur in identified areas of interest and location. The breakdown of time spent between the different directorates would be determined at the time of placement, having regard for workloads and project timelines.
