Aboriginal careers

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees bring diverse skills, knowledge and experience that enriches services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Improving both Aboriginal representation in the health workforce and ensuring access to career and development opportunities is an essential component of building a better functioning health service.

NT Health is creating a workforce that is affirming of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and values, and which seeks to create targeted and general employment and career opportunities.

Read more about these employment opportunities on the NT Government careers website.

NT Health Aboriginal Cadetship Program

The Department of Health has launched an NT Health Aboriginal Cadetship Program to support Aboriginal people to complete higher education health studies and is a key initiative to increasing employment of Aboriginal people as health professionals.

The program will assist eligible Aboriginal students undertaking their first undergraduate degree or postgraduate studies to gain professional health qualifications and experience that will lead to entry to practice upon completion of their studies.

The NT Health Aboriginal Cadetship Program will provide five students with a study allowance, book allowance, incentive payments and a minimum of 12 weeks paid employment during university breaks.

Applications are now open, for more information or to apply visit the NT Government careers website.
