Indigenous Engagement

Improving Employment Opportunities of Indigenous Australians

At Camco we understand that finding the right job can be difficult for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples. We believe that through our involvement in the Aboriginal community, we can positively influence the employment opportunities that exist for Aboriginal people.

Our objective is to have a workforce that reflects the demographics of the Australian community and to contribute to closing the gap.

Camco is proud to promote & support Indigenous Employment Opportunities throughout our company and through our highly successful Apprenticeship program on the road to become a nationally recognised Tradesperson. At Camco, we are committed to making a real and measurable difference to Indigenous employment.

Our commitment to building positive, sustainable relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people and their communities by offering opportunities to Aboriginal job seekers. Camco’s commitment to indigenous engagement includes our participation in National Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week.

Camco conducts a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and Indigenous Engagement Plan in order to achieve our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement objectives.

Outcomes are designed to:

  • Become an employer of choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  • Ensure a more dynamic, innovative and diverse workforce.
  • Develop a more culturally safe and tolerant workplace.
  • Provide a real opportunity to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.
  • Establish new pathways that empower indigenous peoples and create an opportunity to broaden involvement in Australian industry.
  • Contribute to new projects, industries, services and products.

Camco promotes Indigenous Employment in the local community. Camco also hosts Indigenous Apprentices from Key Clients.

Camco RAP has been developed to align with the five critical dimensions of reconciliation as identified in the State of Reconciliation in Australia:

  1. Race relations
  2. Equality and equity
  3. Institutional integrity
  4. Unity
  5. Historical acceptance

Camco supports the nation’s progress toward reconciliation through cultural awareness and improved race relations, this in turn will lead to greater equality and equity.
