Diversity and inclusion

Our work environment is inclusive and supportive and we value our staff.

We strive to be an employer of choice. We provide fair and equitable employment opportunities for people of all cultures, abilities and backgrounds.

What we’re doing

We're using the Workforce Diversity and Inclusion Strategy to encourage inclusive practices in recruitment and career, including:

  • diversity of candidates in recruitment pools
  • job design to support workforce flexibility, diversity and inclusion
  • promoting the benefits of diversity and inclusion to staff
  • resourcing leaders to achieve a more diverse and inclusive workplace
  • supporting employees so they can bring their whole self to work
  • supporting employees with appropriate training, development and career opportunities.

Living in the Darling Downs Health region

Crisp winter air, knee-deep autumn leaves, clear summer days and a riot of colour in spring. Nowhere else in Queensland will you experience all four seasons as distinctively as right here.

You can appreciate the spectacular natural wonders and the stories behind historic sandstone buildings.

Brisbane and the Gold Coast are just two hours away - close enough for a weekend away with friends or family.

To the west, you’ll find rolling plains which are home to little rural townships, and warm bed and breakfasts.

Cruise north to Crows Nest through hamlets along the eastern escarpment and check out nurseries, cafés, museums and galleries.

Go south into the country that was the setting for Steele Rudd’s stories, and enjoy the atmosphere in rustic historic pubs.

In the northwest, the Bunya Mountains rise dramatically against the sky and offer spectacular mountain scenery, walking trails and abundant wildlife.
