Become a Secondment Partner

Secondment partners talk about the benefits of Jawun. Video by Plump Films.

Since 2001, Jawun has worked towards building the capacity of Indigenous people so they can choose a life they have reason to value. This year Jawun will send close to 400 corporate and government secondees to Indigenous organisations in nine regions across Australia.

Our secondment partners are essential to the work of Jawun. They offer their most valued resource – their people – to help Indigenous leaders, organisations and communities achieve their own development goals. This in turn leads to lasting, material and measurable improvements in the lives of the Indigenous people in those communities.


The benefits of becoming a secondment partner include:

  • Making a real difference to Indigenous organisations and communities ‘on the ground’
  • Offering staff members a unique and often life-changing experience, both personally and professionally
  • Staff members return from secondments with informed insights about the challenges facing Indigenous organisations
