Real reviews from young people and employers

"In the past we have successfully provided employment opportunities for young people through yourtown’s Employment Services. Since March 2020 we have partnered with yourtown in a range of programs aimed at increasing employment opportunities for the younger generation. Since forming our partnership we have utilised yourtown's services to engage a number of apprentices and trainees in the Queensland region, as well as focusing on Indigenous employment opportunities."

"The best Job Placement provider I've ever had, I am truly sad that I had to leave. From my experience, they will help you get interviews and try their best to find the work that suits you most as well as helping pay for courses required PPE for work places. This team of amazing people are there for clients. They are purely invested in helping those looking for work and they are overall friendly, understanding and purely there for you. I'd like to thank Vic and Taylor for helping me to the best of their abilities and encouraging me to find work and helping me through a very tough time in my life."
