First Nations Careers

A place to belong

A career at Telstra means you’ll be part of a team that respects each other and welcomes new and different ideas.

First Nations Employees' Network

You’ll have flexibility in how you work, because we know it’s what you do, not where you are, that matters most. And you’ll be supported all the way through our strong First Nations Employees’ network. 

We’re working on things like increasing First Nations employment, and better connections through digital literacy programs, e-health and community partnerships. We value growth opportunities for all our people, so you can develop and build a career with a bright future.

Our commitment

As we transform Telstra, we’re taking a holistic view of diversity, beyond measuring demographics like gender, age and ethnicity, while continuing to prioritise fairness and opportunity for under-represented employees.


We’ve partnered with CareerTrackers, a national not-for-profit organisation, to create paid, multi-year internship opportunities for First Nations university students in Australia.

We’ve committed to host 20 interns each year to help improve the participation of First Nations Australians in the workforce and develop future talent.

First Nations Employee Representative Group

Our First Nations Employee Representative Group is led by a group of representatives and supported by a Senior Leadership Sponsor.

Our purpose is to:

  • Represent fellow First Nations Telstra employees and ensure they have a voice
  • Foster understanding
  • Strengthen connection with First Nation Australian communities
  • Create opportunities at Telstra for First Nations Peoples

First Nations Interview Guarantee

Did you know we have an interview guarantee process in place for shortlisted First Nations candidates? This means any external candidates who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander who is shortlisted for a role in Australia will be automatically offered an interview.

All the ways we're working to support our First Nations customers: account help, community programs and connecting remote communities.
