Yes, we are very committed to a diverse workforce. Examples include: 1. We are the first company in Australia to offer employees a full-time superannuation payment of 12% base salary for up to five years during unpaid parental leave and part-time work periods 2. We have a LGBTIQ network which has been recently established and will be running a number of events throughout the year 3. Parental leave is widely taken by both men and women alike

The company aims to employee equally, based on merit rather than gender or ethnicity. They support organizations and run regular awareness programs. Everyone is treated with respect and get along really well.

What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
Every year, a number of Career Trackers interns from indigenous backgrounds undertake internships with the company, with many of these interns staying on as full time graduates once they complete university. Through Northern Futures, we support three year, $120,000 partnerships which provide scholarships that remove financial barriers to participation in Northern Futures programs for people experiencing mental illness or substance abuse. Since the program began in 2016, more than 30 students have received scholarships to support them remaining in education or gaining employment. These scholarships have ranged from $75 for a forklift licence, through to an $1800 grant to assist with childcare. From Jan 2018 - Dec 2022, Viva Energy and CFF will work together to empower young Indigenous Australians from four remote communities in QLD and NT to stay engaged in their schooling through culturally appropriate education. The focus of the partnership is on two CFF programs; Horizons Program and Activities Program which will benefit the young people and communities of Palm Island, Woorabinda, Wurrumiyanga and Galiwin�ku.
