Aboriginal employment in the NTPS

The Northern Territory Public Sector (NTPS) strives to achieve a public sector that reflects the community it serves through inclusive and culturally appropriate programs, policy development and service delivery strategies.

Aboriginal people make up over 30% of the Northern Territory population. As the largest employer in the NT, the NTPS is in a strong position to take a leadership role in improving the employment and career opportunities of Aboriginal people.

The Aboriginal Employment and Career Development Strategy 2021 – 2025 PDF (15.4 MB) was launched on 24 June 2021. The strategy highlights the NT Government’s commitment to growing Aboriginal employment within the NTPS. The strategy will build on the successes of the previous strategy and continue to work towards the global target of 16 per cent Aboriginal employment within the NTPS and 10 per cent representation in senior positions.
