Abstract: The NTPS is one of the largest employers in the Territory, with over 18,000 staff employed in a broad range of occupations and professions. As a major employer, the public sector is in a unique position to contribute to improved social and economic outcomes for Indigenous Australians through increased employment levels and subsequent enhanced service delivery. We need to strive to achieve a public sector that reflects the diverse community it serves through culturally appropriate programs, policy development and service delivery strategies. The Northern Territory Public Sector Indigenous Employment and Career Development Strategy 2010–2012 has been developed in the context of research that acknowledges that ‘being employed leads to improved wealth and asset creation for Indigenous families and communities, which in turn has a positive influence on health and the education of children. It also enhances self-esteem, increases opportunities for self-development, influences interaction at the family and community levels and reduces social alienation.’
