  • advice to managers about managing Indigenous staff;
  • advice to Human Resource practitioners about developing agency specific Indigenous Employment Strategies;
  • advice to Human Resource areas about recruitment of Indigenous staff including 'Identified' positions, 'Special Measures' positions and proof of Aboriginality;
  • assistance with selection exercises;
  • presentations about Indigenous employment issues to staff networks, managers and
  • advice about learning and development options.
