Email Link   Equal Employment Opportunity

Tweed Shire Council is committed to Equal Employment Opportunity, and will ensure that all employment practices are free from unlawful discrimination.

Council is committed to ensuring that employment related decisions, including but not limited to recruitment, appointment, promotion, salary progression, transfer, employee benefits and access to training are based on merit. This means assessing each person's qualifications, skills, abilities and personal and physical characteristics against the needs of the job, and disregarding personal characteristics which are irrelevant to the job.

In line with Equal Employment Opportunity guidelines, a person's:

  • Age;
  • Race;
  • Sex;
  • Sexual orientation;
  • Marital status;
  • Membership of an ethnic or migrant group;
  • Physical impairment, intellectual or psychiatric disability;

should not reduce their chance of being considered on merit for employment, promotion or access to employment benefits.

Council is also committed to eliminating discriminatory behaviour, both direct and indirect, harassment and vilification in the workplace.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People

Tweed Shire Council is an inclusive workplace that aims to attract Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by offering professional recognition and career development. We aim to improve the employment outcomes within our community for Indigenous Australians.

People with a Disability

Tweed Shire Council understands that people with a disability can bring a range of skills, talents and abilities to the workplace. Wherever possible, we modify and adapt our job tasks, processes, and equipment to ensure people with a disability have the opportunity to shine in a position that suits their skills and aptitude.
