Work Opportunities at the 2019 NSW Aboriginal Land Council elections

Applications are now open for Aboriginal people to work at the NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) elections on Saturday, 30 November 2019.

Nine councillors will be elected, one to represent each of the nine regional Aboriginal Land Council areas in NSW.

They are: Central, Mid North Coast, North Coast, Northern, North West, South Coast, Sydney/Newcastle, Western and Wiradjuri regions.

The NSW Electoral Commission has positions available for work at regional polling places on election day itself, and at Regional Electoral Officers' offices in the lead-up to the election.

The positions include Polling Place Manager, Election Official, Senior Office Assistant and Office Assistant.

Office Assistants may be employed for up to eight weeks during the election period.

If you are interested in any of the available positions, you can complete your application online.

Anyone who has worked at NSWALC elections previously will need to register again and create a new login.

We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
