Be part of something REAL

At the Department of Transport, we’re a diverse and inclusive community of passionate professionals who work together to create a better future for Western Australia.

In addition to rewarding work, you can be part of something REAL:

  • real purpose.

Real connection

We envisage an organisation embedded in an understanding of its community, where every employee brings their best self to work and leaves having been seen, heard and able to contribute meaningfully to the outcomes of the business.

We have a roadmap for workforce inclusion and diversity which we commit to achieving by 2026, with actions designed to:

  • Increase employee diversity at all levels across the Department of Transport
  • Create a sense of inclusion and belonging for all our people

By offering our people access to peer support programs, inclusion, equity and diversity initiatives as well as a range of leave benefits we allow our people to feel secure and supported.

Read more about how we create an environment of belonging for our people, see our 2022-2027 Disability Access and Inclusion Plan and our 2021-2024 Multicultural Plan.

Real growth
