Diversity and inclusion
Road and Maritime Services is committed to building a diverse and inclusive work culture.
We know that diversity and inclusion helps us to provide better customer service, build greater capacity for innovation and problem solving and increased productivity and performance. A diverse and inclusive culture helps us attract, recruit, engage and retain talented people.
In the Transport Cluster, including Road and Maritime Services, diversity relates to differences in age, gender, ethnicity, cultural background, sexual orientation, religious belief, disability and carer responsibilities. It also applies to other differences, such as educational level, life experience, work experience, socio-economic background, personality and marital status. Inclusion refers to the achievement of a work environment where differences and diversity of thought are valued.
Our Diversity and Inclusion programs target all employees, with specific strategies to ensure employment equity for women, Aboriginal people, people with a disability and people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.
Being a diverse and inclusive employer is important to our employees because it encourages individuality and diversity of thought. Our people value working in a culture that plans for, and encourages diversity, recognising the value of individual differences.
Roads and Maritime Services is committed to increasing the number of Aboriginal people in our workforce. We employ Aboriginal people in identified and mainstream positions across NSW as trainees, apprentices, road workers, road designers, cultural heritage advisors, project managers, customer service officers, driver testing officers and as driver licensing and road safety strategy advisors.
We encourage Aboriginal people to apply for mainstream positions as well as identified positions.
Roads and Maritime’s strategic framework outlines recruitment, development and retention initiatives to assist us increase representation of Aboriginal people within our workforce.
