Equal Employment Opportunities

Equal Opportunity Workplace

Our inclusive workplace ensures diversity and equal opportunities are provided.

Council has an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Management Plan which ensures that our recruitment process is consistent with EEO practice.  The plan aims to promote equal employment opportunities for all employees, and future employees of Hunter’s Hill Council.

To facilitate the success of this plan, seven key objectives have been developed:

  • Commitment to consultation throughout the development and implementation of EEO planning and outcomes.
  • Policies, procedures and corporate documents contributing to EEO outcomes.
  • Increasing the level of awareness amongst staff of EEO practices and principles.
  • Ensuring all recruitment, appointment, induction and transfer practices conform with EEO principles and demonstrate fair practice.
  • Ensuring all employees have equal access to learning and development opportunities including secondments and acting roles.
  • Promoting a diverse and skilled workplace that is better able to meet the needs of the community.
  • Implementing the EEO Management Plan and ensuring regular evaluation and review.

As a responsible employer, we are committed to taking proactive measures to ensure our employees are afforded equal access to employment, promotion and learning and development opportunities within our workplace.

To ensure the principles of equality are adopted, Council offers flexible working arrangements for all our staff and other programs will continue to evolve according to our employee needs.
