14 days ago

Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council is a leading community service organisation that provides a range of programs to women, children and their families. Our work spans across 350,000 square kilometres of Central Australia and is critical to building and maintaining a better future for all Anangu communities within the region.

Tjanpi Desert Weavers (Tjanpi) was initiated by NPY Women’s Council in 1995 in response to an expressed need by Anangu women for meaningful and culturally appropriate employment. Since 1995, Tjanpi (meaning ‘dry grass’) has evolved into a vital and dynamic Indigenous social enterprise of NPY Women’s Council and enables women on the lands to earn a regular income from selling their fibre art.

More than 400 Aboriginal women artists across 350,000 square kilometres of the Central and Western Desert region of Australia come together on country to create beautiful, intricate and whimsical fibre art.

The Tjanpi team is made up of 8 staff who support this social enterprise within Alice Springs and in the communities. We are now looking to add to our team and are recruiting for a Gallery Assistant to work full-time.


The ideal applicant will have successfully completed Year 12, have experience in customer service or retail, and have experience, or willingness to work, with people from cultural and linguistically diverse backgrounds. You will be professional and helpful and someone who enjoys interacting with customers on a daily basis.

This is your opportunity to make a real impact alongside a dedicated, skilled and supportive group of people. The organisation is committed to working within the NPY lands for the benefit of Anangu people in the region and you will work in an environment and landscape unique to Australia.
