The Aboriginal Employment Opportunities (AEO) Register is an ongoing recruitment drive within the NTG eRecruit system utilised similarly to Entry Level Recruitment for both applicants and Government agencies. AEO covers AO3 to SAO2 classifications, and is open to Aboriginal NT Government staff and public job seekers to be considered vacancies less than six months.

Primary objective
