Virgin Australia's Indigenous Employment Program

Indigenous Program

Virgin Australia began its award-winning Indigenous Employment Program in 2009 to address the under-representation of Indigenous peoples in Virgin Australia’s workforce.

Since its inception, the Indigenous Employment Program has grown from strength to strength and now proudly employs many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander team members.

Virgin Australia’s Indigenous Employment Program is developed on a strengths based approach to Indigenous recruitment, where we work hard to find and attract highly skilled Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to our business.

We are proud to say that our program is completely self-funded and provides the same employment opportunities as non-Indigenous peoples, which are real and sustainable employment options.

Dedicated Indigenous Recruitment Team

Virgin Australia has a dedicated team who are focussed on Indigenous recruitment and managing relationships with key community organisations.

Dedicated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Careers Sessions

Virgin Australia runs a number of dedicated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Careers Sessions in various locations to support and attract Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates to positions across our business.

These sessions provide candidates with an overview of our business; information about our current vacancies and Virgin Australia’s recruitment process. It is also a great opportunity for the Indigenous Recruitment Team to meet and get to know you and to discuss your career aspirations.

These sessions are highly informative in order to help you to prepare and to put your best business foot forward when applying for a position with Virgin Australia.

So, register your interest to come to one of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Careers Sessions now.

Please note: No preferential treatment is given to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates. These sessions are simply designed to help candidates to prepare for when they go through the merit based selection process.
