How we overcome employment barriers
There are more job seekers than jobs, which has the greatest impact on those facing more barriers to employment.
We seek a representative workforce that reflects contemporary Australia and embraces the contributions of all backgrounds and identities.
We create jobs that are easily accessible by public transport, that don’t require a drivers license, and we provide bikes for mobility.
Paid work experience helps young people become responsible, organised, reliable and aware of workplace expectations.
Those lacking education or qualifications can access employment, relevant industry experience and certifications.
We support young people to build their resumes and professional networks.
Long-term pathways with community and industry partners help people access our programs and transition to ongoing, meaningful work.
