Job benefits and perks

SEDA College encourages people from different backgrounds to apply, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people with disability.

Research shows that while males apply for roles when they meet some of the selection criteria, females and members of other marginalised groups tend to apply for roles only when they have all the skills and experience required. So, if you think you have what it takes, but don’t necessarily meet every single point above, please still get in touch. We’d love to have a conversation to see if you could be a great fit for the College.
