Situated on Whadjuk and Pindjarup Noongar lands, Murdoch University was founded over 40 years ago on principles of social inclusion, equity and free-thinking. Today, we remain a university for all, irrespective of social, cultural or economic backgrounds.
Through our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy 2019–2021, we affirm our commitment to improving Indigenous equity across our workforce. We invite you to help us achieve our goals – and yours – by registering your interest for career opportunities through our talent register.
About our talent register
The Talent Register is part of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy, supporting the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and our commitment to increasing employment, development and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff. The core goals within our Employment Strategy include:

An employer of choice
Become an employer of choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Western Australia.
Path for recruitment
Establish a recruitment pathway to harness the existing and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student population at Murdoch.

Current Murdoch students are encouraged to register. To register, fill in the online form and attach a copy of your current CV and a cover letter explaining your previous experience and the type of role you are interested in.
Once registered, you will enter the pool of candidates to be considered against current vacancies. In an effort to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, positions may also be created dependant on your skills and experience.
