Our diversity partnerships
Our diversity partnerships
We partner with a number of organisations across the country to assist in increasing the employment opportunities and access to employment for Indigenous Australians. We believe in developing relationships with local community based organisations.
We’re proud to present our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), solidifying our long-term commitment to advancing reconciliation.
People with disabilities
We are experienced in the sourcing and placement of candidates with disabilities and our affiliation with the National Disability Recruitment Coordinator (NDRC) helps organisations implement processes and strategies to promote the recruitment and retention of people with disability. The Hays Guide to Disability in the Recruitment Process, offers our clients useful information about improving all aspects of the recruitment cycle. Through our affiliation with the NDRC we can broadcast our roles to the disability employment network either for individual positions or entire recruitment campaigns.
People from diverse cultural backgrounds
We place new Australian residents hailing from nations around the globe in temporary and permanent roles. We have access to interpreters where English is not required and our staff can assist with a wide range of languages. We successfully place travellers from a diverse range of backgrounds in assignments throughout the country and have a specific business unit, Globalink, to manage our resources in this area.
Our consultants maintain a high profile at a range of women’s networking functions across the country to maximise our presence in this domain. We’ve also published several thought leadership reports around gender diversity in the workplace, and we conduct an annual study into gender related attitudes in the workplace. Our latest report explores key themes and recommendations linked to improving gender balance in the world of work.
Hays is committed to providing employment opportunities, pre-employment development, and training to the youth candidate pool. We aim to attract youth candidates to the our candidate pool, maximise employment opportunities through traineeships, provide skills training and develop the critical skills involved in job seeking.
We recognise the growing need to tap into a significant, yet underutilised candidate pool, the mature candidate market. Additionally, the flexibility offered by our temporary assignments has attracted many mature-age workers. We appreciate the importance of treating people sensitively in facilitating equal opportunity. Our methodology is aimed at identifying every way in which a candidate matches a job’s requirements and can add value to a business.
We work with a number of businesses with LGBTI (Lesbian, Gays, Bisexual, Transsexual & Intersex) inclusion initiatives. As proof of our commitment to be an equal opportunities employer, in the last 12 months we have placed a number of transgender candidates into roles.

Aboriginal Employment Strategy
The AES is a 100% Indigenous managed, national, not-for-profit recruitment company. In collborating with a specialist indigenous recruiter, Hays is able to better support our Indigenous candidates’ career searches, whilst providing our clients with top indigenous talent.
Partnering with JobAccess since 2015 has enabled us to promote the 12 month 'Driving Disability' program for employers and to build stronger candidate pipelines with disability employment service providers.
Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience
AIME gave us the opportunity to mentor their mentors who improve the pathways to further education and employment for indigenous high school kids. 16 Hays directors have participated in the programme so far.

We are proud to be affiliated with the Australian Network on Disability to help organisations implement processes and strategies to promote the recruitment and retention of people with disability.
