Proposed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement
When recruiting for positions within Leonards, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply. Leonards head office, only recently, used to be based in Darlington/Redfern with a large local Aboriginal community. When advertising positions, job ads are regularly placed in the Koori Mail. Although no Aboriginal staff are currently employed, this is by chance as we have had Aboriginal team members in the past.
Leonards would be delighted to appoint Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders as part of the team delivering of Media and Advertising Services to suppliers of Avetta. Likely roles would include integrated media planner and programmatic media executive. Our agency has graduate recruitment programs as an entry point and are proactive in seeking suitably qualified Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders. Employment dates would be in line with both the contract as well as the respective staffing needs of both agencies at the time.
Leonards would engage and work with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders on a subcontractor or supplier basis both for this contract and in general.
Leonards is 100% Australian-owned and committed to generating local employment through procurement and recruitment. With offices in Sydney and Melbourne CBDs however if appointed to work in another state, Leonards will take the opportunity to establish a permanent Brisbane office. Leonards already have a significant number of Queensland clients with team members regularly traveling between states.
