Jawun Indigenous Corporate Partnership Program

We are pleased to partner with Jawun to provide two secondment opportunities for public sector leaders in August and September 2019 through the Jawun Indigenous Corporate Partnership Program.

Secondments take place in the Kimberley region – one in the East and one in the West - and offer a unique, six-week development opportunity for staff at Level 7 and above.

Please consider this opportunity if you have an interest in working with Indigenous communities, and are a high performing leader with skills that will provide value and support the achievement of community outcomes.  

If your application is successful, you will be required to live and work in a remote location for the six-week placement. A six-day induction program is provided. 

The 2019 East Kimberley secondment takes place from 4 August to 14 September and the West Kimberley from 18 August to 28 September.

Locations in the West Kimberley include Broome, Derby and Fitzroy Crossing. East Kimberley locations include Kununurra, Halls Creek and Wyndham.  Participants are supported by a Jawun regional director for the duration of the secondment.

Your application will be assessed by Jawun, which will consider your skills and experience relevant to the community project available.   


Your salary continues to be paid for the duration of the secondment by your home agency. The following costs are covered by the Commission; travel including air fares; car hire and fuel; accommodation; meals; four-wheel drive training; and cultural awareness training.


Your chief executive officer must endorse your application, including your release for the secondment duration.

All applications are coordinated by the Commission and assessed by Jawun.  Jawun allocates successful candidates to a program.

Submit your application, by the closing date, to aboriginalemployment@psc.wa.gov.au.

Applications close 5.00pm Thursday 20 June 2019. The program is open to Aboriginal and non−Aboriginal employees.
