Look for opportunities externally through government and non-government agencies to further support the employment of Aboriginal staff into the NSW Health workplace.
Elsa Dixon Aboriginal Employment Program
The Elsa Dixon Aboriginal Employment Program supports Aboriginal employment in the NSW Public and Local Government sectors. An initiative of the Department of Education & Communities, the program provides funding to organisations to support Aboriginal education, employment and training by subsidising the salary, development and support costs of Aboriginal employees in a public service agency or local council.
Essentially, the Elsa Dixon program presents an opportunity for managers to support the permanent or temporary employment of an Aboriginal person (for up to 12 months) in NSW Health. This represents a significant development opportunity for both the employee and employer.
