People with disability

Here at Transport, we want our workforce to reflect the communities we serve by being an inclusive, diverse and flexible place for our people.

We understand that disability can be visible and invisible, and we want to ensure that employees living with disability, as well as those providing care, are supported. This means we’re continuously striving to reduce and eliminate everyday barriers for our people and our customers.

If you’re interested in joining Transport, we can work with you to adjust our recruitment process and work environment to your needs. We also support people with disability through a range of organisational plans and initiatives.

Transport initiatives and networks

Right now, more than 550 people from Transport voluntarily identify as living with disability, making up two per cent of our overall workforce. We’re working to increase the number of employees with disability to 5.6 per cent by 2025.

Access and inclusion plan 

Transport’s Access and Inclusion Plan outlines a range of practical steps that support the ongoing recruitment, long-term employment, and career development of people with disability. Our Disability Inclusion Action Plan focuses on how we’re supporting customers with disabilities.

Recruitment training 

Our talent acquisition team has participated in Disability Confident Recruitment training sessions facilitated by the Australian Network on Disability. These sessions are aimed at educating the team on barriers in the recruitment process and suggesting strategies to remove them.

Tailored talent program 

Transport also participates in the Public Service Commission’s Tailored Talent program, which is focused on bringing neurodiverse and autistic talent into the NSW Government sector. Since 2020, 16 candidates from the Tailored Talent program have joined Transport permanently.

Enabled employee network 

Our Enabled employee network supports and connects our people living with a disability, as well as carers and allies. Enabled also helps inform the way we do things at Transport, maintaining an open dialogue between employees and leaders to continue to progress inclusion and accessibility in our organisation through policies, updated ways of working and education.

Resources and events 

We also encourage learning and awareness across Transport’s workforce of over 30,000 people through resources like the NSW Public Service Commission Disability Awareness modules and additional disability support resources for leaders. We also recognise annual events including International Day of People with a Disability, Autism Awareness Month, Mental Health Awareness Week and R U OK? Day.

Work in ways that work for you and your team

We enable our people to work in ways that work for them. Working virtually and from different locations including regional locations, staggering work hours and job sharing are just some of the ways our people can work flexibly.

We’re flexible in how we support you

Our recruitment process is aimed at getting to know more about your skills and experience relevant to the role you’ve applied for. The recruitment process and work environment will vary for each role.

We want to give you the best possible chance to perform well during the recruitment process and in your role. We’re happy to accommodate adjustments to how you interact with us and in making your work environment accessible.
