Indigenous Interview Guarantee

Increasing diversity happens one decision at a time. It’s all about getting the right talent in front of our hiring managers.

Did you know we have an interview guarantee process in place for shortlisted Indigenous candidates? This means any external candidate who identifies as Indigenous and is shortlisted for a role in Australia will be automatically offered an interview.

This means if any external candidates who identify as being Indigenous or living with a disability are shortlisted for a role, they will automatically be interviewed!

People with Disability at Telstra

At Telstra, we’re from diverse backgrounds, with a variety of skills and talents.

Diversity includes differences in background and life experience, communication and thinking styles, personal skills, education and expertise. It also includes other ways our people and customers differ, including gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity and cultural identity.

We’re committed to being inclusive at all levels of the company – and this is backed by our values, cultural priorities and our Employee Diversity and Inclusion policy. We believe diversity fosters greater innovation, stronger problem-solving capability, greater customer connection, increased morale, motivation and engagement.

Our Disability Action Plan articulates our core disability commitments – to employees and their carers, to customers and to the wider community. It recognises the benefits that modern communications technologies bring to people with disability and the important leadership role that Telstra can play as one of the largest employers in Australia. We are proud to support candidates and employees who identify as living with a disability and help them to have a great career at Telstra.
