  1. IndigCareers allows employers to advertise job vacancies on the Site. For the purposes of this site, IndigCareers advertises jobs that target Indigenous Australians or Non-Indigenous Australians with Indigenous cultural competency. Specifically, advertisements must fulfil one or more of the following criteria:
    1. any job in an organisation where the organisation’s primary focus is focused on attracting Indigenous job seekers.
    2. a job within any organisation or company where the job itself requires Indigenous cultural competency.
  2. IndigCareers reserves the right to withdraw without notice to the Advertiser any advertisement that appears to IndigCareers not to fulfil one or more of the criteria above.
  3. Advertisements that appear on IndigCareers do not in any way imply an endorsement of an employer or of any practices of that employer.
  4. IndigCareers reviews all job advertisements prior to publication and reserves the right to withdraw without notice to the Advertiser any advertisement that may in our view be in breach of any clause of this agreement or of any law or regulation.
  5. IndigCareers also reserves the right to terminate this agreement if the Advertiser posts any advertisement that may be in breach of any law or regulation. Further, IndigCareers reserves the right to, at our absolute discretion, reject or remove any advertisement from the Site for any reason.

  8. Advertisers are obliged to pay for the services that IndigCareers agrees to provide you with regardless of whether you utilise or fully utilise those services. If an Advertiser does not provide IndigCareers with the necessary materials or information for IndigCareers to deliver these services, the Advertiser is still liable to IndigCareers for full payment.
  9. As a condition of using any services supplied by IndigCareers, Advertisers must comply with the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act 1986 (Cth) and all anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation applicable in the State or Territory in which they conduct business. Where an exemption to comply with the legislation has been granted, the exemption number must be included in the advertisement submitted to IndigCareers.

  23. Advertisers agree that IndigCareers retains all intellectual property rights contained in any of the goods and services provided to the Advertiser by IndigCareers.
  24.

Advertisers understand and agree that the following actions constitute a new/additional job advertisement under this agreement: copying a job ad; reposting an expired, archived or deleted job ad; changing the location of an ad; extending a live job ad beyond 30 days. Minor changes to job ad body copy and ad title, work type, sector and classification categories do not usually constitute a new job ad.
  26. Advertisers acknowledge and agree that they must only advertise one job role per job advertisement posted on to the IndigCareers Site.
