The Australian War Memorial commemorates the service and sacrifice of Australian men and women who have died while serving in the wars, warlike operations, and peacekeeping missions in which Australia has participated. It is a cultural institution of international standing and is one of Australia's leading tourist attractions.
The staff and volunteers of the Australian War Memorial come from a wide range of professional, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. They undertake a diverse range of activities. Every effort is made to create an environment that enables staff to develop their talents, contribute to the best of their ability, use their creativity and initiative, and be acknowledged and respected for what they achieve.
The Memorial has approximately 300 staff members and 200 volunteers.
The Australian War Memorial employs Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in a number of branches and sections across the organisation. Here are some profiles of some of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff:
