Working with us

The Department of Training and Workforce Development is building the workforce to meet the economic and community needs of Western Australia. We are a medium sized public sector agency leading and working across many areas of Western Australia’s training and workforce development landscape. Our work requires dedicated staff behind the scenes to develop and drive the training and workforce development initiatives, strategies and plans that support the State’s economic and community needs. Our workforce of over 500 people enjoy the challenges and benefits of working in this diverse and ever-changing area.

The Department embraces diversity and encourages applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally diverse backgrounds, young people and people with disability. We encourage applicants who identify as Aboriginal to visit our Aboriginal Workforce Development Centre website for assistance with finding employment and career progression, and support these groups of employees through the following programs and initiatives.

The Department ensures substantive equality is integrated into our workplaces and across the services we provide. This will be achieved through eliminating systemic discrimination in the provision of services and promoting sensitivity to the different needs of client groups.
