The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) participates in the Australian Public Service RecruitAbility Scheme (the Scheme) to support the employment of people with disability.
In DVA’s online Jobs List - Candidate Portal, when you apply for a role you must first identify that you have a disability which will give you the option to ‘opt into’ the Scheme.
You must tick the ‘opt in’ box to participate as just declaring you have a disability will not automatically include you.
As long as you have been assessed as meeting the minimum requirements of the job, your application will be progressed to the next stage of the selection process.
Please note that DVA is able to provide reasonable adjustments such as access, equipment or other practical support at relevant stages of the recruitment process.
If you need any reasonable adjustments made, please inform the Contact Officer listed for the position.
