People with a disability

We have partnered with the Australian Network on Disability (AND) and Social Ventures Australia (SVA) on the NSW Government initiative High Growth Jobs, Talented Candidates (HGJTC).

We are committed to increasing the workforce participation rates of people with a disability at Uniting, and are working on a range of actions including:

  • Developing workplace cultures that appropriately support employees with a disability
  • Taking purposeful action to increase representation levels of people with a disability working at Uniting
  • Developing more effective ways to measure employment outcomes for people with a disability at Uniting
  • Addressing accessibility and career progression issues for employees with a disability, including workplace accessibility, and flexibility in working arrangements and job design.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

At Uniting, we are committed to a strategy for more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to join us.

We’re working with the Department of Education and Training and the Department of Employment to become a corporate leader in Indigenous employment. We are also working to ensure 2% of the total Uniting workforce are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. That is more than 140 new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff.

Jaanimili is the name given to the Aboriginal Services & Development Unit within Uniting. Jaanimili means ‘gathering’ from the Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal people of the mid north coast of NSW. The Jaanimili group invites the participation of all Aboriginal staff working across the organisation to inform our cultural model of working in NSW/ACT.

One of the roles of the Jaanimili group is to provide cultural support and guidance to our employees from Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal backgrounds. As part of the organisation’s commitment to Australia’s First Peoples, Jaanimili is responsible for leading relationships and work with Aboriginal people and communities across NSW and the ACT.
