Home of NITV


SBS is the home of National Indigenous Television (NITV), a multimedia network made by, for and about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. NITV has been informing, educating and entertaining its Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences about the issues that matter the most to Indigenous Australians since 2007.

NITV commissions or acquires content primarily from the Indigenous production sector, providing a rich diversity of cultures, languages and talent. NITV is also proud to host the only daily national news service covering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island stories across the country.

As NITV develops within the media landscape, its growing audience recognises the network as unique in celebrating and providing a voice for Indigenous Australia, as well as educating and opening a dialogue with wider Australia.

Elders In Residence Program (Rhoda Roberts AO)

A proud Widjabul/Wieybal woman from the Bundjalung nation, Rhoda Roberts AO brings a wealth of cultural and artistic knowledge to SBS as our inaugural Elder In Residence.    The Elders In Residence program is aimed at enhancing culturally sound practices and acknowledging the value of First Nations Elders at SBS.   The design of the Elders In Residence program was developed in an Indigenous-led and informed structure and provides many benefits which celebrate the continued practice and dynamism of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders cultures and knowledges and provides us an opportunity to understand and amplify Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander voices within SBS.

Leadership Excellence

We encourage continuous development of our talent and build leadership capability through bespoke programs such as our flagship leadership development program ‘It’s How We Lead’ as well as accelerated development programs that target high potential talent, and an Emerging Leaders program which builds capability in non-leaders who have leadership potential and aspirations.

Early Careers


SBS offers a range of graduate and cadetship opportunities for Indigenous candidates in areas right across the business including within our News & Current Affairs, Legal and Broadcast Technology teams to name a few.

SBS also partners with Career Trackers to offer a minimum of six paid internship opportunities each summer to Indigenous university students across a range of disciplines. We partner with these students throughout their tertiary studies so they can combine their theoretical learning with practical on the job experience.

Each year we also recruit four graduate journalists as part of our News cadet program. This is a 12-month full-time program for new journalism graduates which provides them with a broad range of experience across our various news and current affairs properties. At least one of these four positions is always an identified position reserved for the next generation of First Nations journalists.
