Assistant Aboriginal Heritage Adviser Program

​​The Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment has established an Assistant Aboriginal Heritage Adviser Program.

The Program will support Assistant Aboriginal Heritage Advisers to gain the knowledge and skills required to promote the recognition, protection and management of Tasmania's unique Aboriginal cultural heritage. 

The Program will also build capacity and provide employment opportunities for Aboriginal people to manage Aboriginal cultural heritage.

The Program provides funding to support four Assistant Aboriginal Heritage Advisers over four years. Assistant Aboriginal Heritage Advisers will learn to undertake activities to complete Aboriginal heritage management processes and participate in projects to support the protection and management of Aboriginal cultural heritage within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. 

The positions will include office and field based activities as well as completion of Certificates II and III or III and IV in Conservation and Land Management offered through TasTAFE.

Following restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, advertising of the Assistant Aboriginal Heritage Adviser positions was withheld from 1 April 2020. 

With restrictions easing, four positions will be advertised on the Tasmanian Jobs Online website and SEEK on 3 June 2020 and in the Mercury, Examiner, Advocate and Koori Mail Newspapers on 6 June 2020 with a closing date of 26 June 2020.
