Living and working on a remote community within MacDonnell Regional Council:

Our centres are located on small remote communities varying from 100 - 650Kms (travel on mainly dirt roads) from Alice Springs. The experience of living and working in a remote Aboriginal community is both privilege and a great learning opportunity as you immerse yourself in a world that most Australians will never experience, however, it can be a demanding career and life choice. Usually our staff spend their spare time exploring the beautiful desert surroundings and take advantage of the adventure offered when living in a remote location. It is important to develop hobbies and to plan activities. Most importantly, the demands of the job should not be underplayed. You will have good days and bad, but each day is a new day with a new set of challenges.

Under MacDonnell Regional Council's Special Measures Scheme, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for this position and will be preferenced in the selection process if they meet all the essential selection criteria and are suitable at the position level.

This is an incredible opportunity to live and work in Central Australia. For further information contact
