Central Desert Native Title Services Limited

Indigenous Australians are encouraged to apply. We are seeking to increase the diversity of our workforce to better meet the needs of our clients and to improve equal opportunity outcomes for our employees. This is authorised under Section 51 of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984.

Central Desert Native Title Services is committed to achieving the best native title outcomes for the Traditional Owners of the Central Desert region of Western Australia. We assist our clients to use their traditional lands to fulfil their highest social, cultural and economic aspirations.

Central Desert provides a range of services geared towards supporting Aboriginal Corporations known as Prescribed Body Corporate (PBC)s. A PBC is the corporate entity established to represent a Traditional Owner group in business matters, such as future acts, ILUA negotiations and cultural heritage. The PBC is the first point of contact for government and other parties (for example, mining companies) who wish to talk with the native title holders or undertake activities on native title land. We work with PBCs to achieve a sustainable and independent future, focusing on building capacity by empowering local and regional decision making.

We are seeking a PBC Travel and Admin Support Officer to join our team. In this varied and pivotal role, you will coordinate the travel and logistical needs of the PBC Support team, to get them out on the ground in regional and remote WA locations, to meet with our clients.

  • excellent inter-personal communication skills, and the ability to communicate with Aboriginal people where English may be a second language;
  • the ability to learn and adapt quickly to using different database and accounting systems (experience with MYOB preferable);
  • a high level of accuracy and attention to detail;
  • competence in the use of Microsoft Office applications (including Teams); and
  • a team player attitude and able to work and have fun in a busy, time pressured environment.

In addition to a rewarding and dynamic position, Central Desert can offer benefits such as:

  • generous salary packaging options;
  • superannuation in addition to salary presented;
  • long service leave available pro rata after five years of continuous service;
