Personalised Services

We want to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people meet employer requirements, together with ongoing personal support, mentoring and coaching.

We work with employers to identify their labour needs and to secure placement opportunities. We then provide practical work preparations to assist job seekers in achieving results.
