Disability at Treasury

We’re committed to providing an accessible, inclusive work environment that enables people with disability to participate fully in all aspects of employment.

We recognise the valuable and unique contributions people with disabilities make to our workforce and society which is why we make sure disability is not a barrier to people joining or progressing their careers in our department. 

Workplace Adjustments
To enable all staff to thrive in their job, and our department, we are developing policies to offer workplaces adjustments, including where and how people work, work processes, practices and procedures. We work collaboratively with each staff member to ensure workplace adjustments are considered and developed according to their individual requirements and preferences.
