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 Indigenous university students in Australia. We’ve committed to host 20 interns each year to help improve the participation of Indigenous Australians in the workforce and develop future talent.

Our Indigenous employee representative group, Dharrang, is led by a group of representatives and supported by a Senior Leadership Sponsor.
Dharrang’s purpose is to:
- Represent fellow Indigenous employees in the business and give Indigenous employees a voice at Telstra
- Foster understanding
- Strengthen connection with broader Indigenous Australian community
- Create opportunities at Telstra for Indigenous people
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!
