Australian Taxation Office
The Australian Taxation Office is the Government’s principal revenue collection agency. We are also the second largest payer of government benefits. Our role is to manage and shape tax, excise and superannuation systems that fund services for Australians and give effect to social and economic policy.
As one of the largest Commonwealth Agencies the Tax Office is committed to creating an inclusive work environment that accommodates the needs of employees and encourages them to contribute to the maximum of their potential.
The Tax Office recognises that the culture and environment in the Tax Office must be sensitive and supportive in order to attract and retain employees with disabilities. To this end the Tax Office has a Disability Action Plan. The aim of this plan is to reflect the diversity of the Australian community, particularly to increase the number of employees with a disability in our workforce. Employing a diverse range of people largely reflective of the community’s diversity brings to the Tax Office different perspectives that can add to our innovation and creativity.
Over the next few years the Tax Office will be looking to attract and retain an increasing number of people with disability into areas of operations where we can provide relevant and desirable careers as well as enhance services to clients in the community with disability.
We are working with the Australian Network on Disability in the Stepping into Law program and to offer Business Administration Traineeships for People with Intellectual Disability.
In 2007, the Tax Office piloted a School to Work Program for students with disability. This program provides sponsorship, mentoring and work experience to students over a three-year period during school years 10,11 and 12 .
