Habitat Security is a majority-owned Indigenous business that specialises in providing security guarding services to Commonwealth Government departments.

Established in 2016, Habitat Security is already proud to include the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and The Treasury among our clients. Habitat Security is a partnership between Indigenous recruitment specialist Habitat Personnel and MSS Security, one of Australia’s largest security companies. This partnership allows Habitat to draw on MSS Security’s extensive government-related security experience and award-winning Indigenous employment program, which is designed to not only attract Indigenous employees, but to encourage each person’s personal growth and contribution to the company by providing mentoring and a culturally inclusive workplace.

While our aim is to improve business opportunities for Indigenous Australians, Habitat is also working to assist individual Indigenous people, via MSS Security’s involvement with the Commonwealth Government’s Employee Parity Initiative (EPI), which is encouraging Australia’s largest companies to employ more Indigenous Australians. Specifically, the program is seeking to get 20,000 more Indigenous job seekers employed by 2020. MSS Security is a signatory to the EPI and has committed to increase its Indigenous employment rate from 2.3% to more than double the 3% the Government is seeking from the nation’s largest employers by the end of 2018/19. As well as providing employment opportunities, an equally important objective for Habitat Security is to source goods and services from other Indigenous enterprises, e.g. printing and stationery, uniform and IT equipment; this will benefit those enterprises and assist their communities.

“What Habitat Security ultimately should be applauded for is its commitment to the principles of the Indigenous Inclusion Initiatives. Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander personnel have seamlessly integrated into the Treasury environment and are valued members of our team. Treasury is proud to partner with Habitat in advancing this initiative.”
