Our vision for reconciliation is one where we walk alongside First Nations peoples to achieve equitable access to social mobility, employment and business opportunities. Having a workforce that includes First Nations people and voices is a vital part of this vision.  A truly representative workforce can forge stronger connections with communities, customers and businesses – generating meaningful and lasting benefits for all.  

Transurban’s people policies and programs are tailored to drive an inclusive and equitable environment for all our employees, including First Nations employees.

We support our people in increasing their cultural understanding and provide opportunities for everyone to join us on the path we’re walking with all First Nations stakeholders. 

"Transurban has already done a lot of foundational work around First Nations programs and initiatives ... and now we are building on those foundations, and the business is stretching and growing. I had a sense that those who interviewed me were supportive, positive individuals who enjoyed working at Transurban. Since commencing in the role and getting to know those who interviewed me better, my gut feeling was right."
Gael Duff, a proud Gamilaroi woman and our First Nations Program Manager.

Recognising that we cannot achieve our vision without a truly representative workforce that includes more First Nations peoples, we have created a First Nations Employment Strategy that focuses on increasing the representation of First Nations employees across our Australian workforce.  Learn more >

We celebrate First Nations peoples and culture in the design of our roads and open spaces, and we engage with First Nations businesses in our operations. Examples of how we do this include: 

  • Through our major construction projects, more than $136 million has been spent with First Nations businesses – providing services, expertise and materials that are helping us build these new city-shaping roads
  • Reflecting and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage in the urban design and landscaping of our major projects, and partnering with First Nations artists to create public installations along our road corridors. 
  • Partnering with First Nations community organisations to create employment and education opportunities, such as STEM scholarships, driver training programs and remote and regional student education.
