Diversity and Inclusion

Austrade is committed to providing a work environment where staff can confidently bring their full selves to work. A truly diverse agency is one that is capable of retaining a broad talent base while best serving its clients and connecting to its global network of employees.

The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy sets out how Austrade will continue to build a space where everyone can bring their perspectives, creativity, and skills to the work of the agency. It is the roadmap for how Austrade will strengthen its position as an employer of choice.

Given our commitment to diversity and inclusion, Austrade actively encourages applications from people with disabilities, LGBTIQ people, women, and people with diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

We also recognise the richness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and the unique knowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees bring to our workplace. As such, we welcome and encourage applications from Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islander people for vacancies in the agency.

Employment pathways

Austrade participates in pathway programs to engage people in the work we do through either employment or internship opportunities. These programs include:
