Working in the Indigenous sector

Paid placements

Part-time, locum (2 to 11 mths) and full-time paid placement opportunities can be available through Aurora, usually as a direct outcome of an unpaid placement. You should check the job network for employment opportunities.

If you are interested in paid opportunities, we encourage you to apply for an internship first and if you progress to the interview stage, we can mention your interest in an ongoing paid placement, which may eventuate following on from your unpaid internship.

It is interesting to note that:

  • Over 8500 internship alumni (over 35%) been employed in a full-time or part-time capacity in the broader Indigenous sector.
  • Over 25% of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Aurora alumni have been employed in the Indigenous sector.
