We understand that in striving for a more just and inclusive Australia, we have a crucial role in assisting businesses and organisations to better address these challenges.

We aim to support our partners by identifying significant employment prospects and connecting employers with upcoming Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent, thereby contributing to the development of their own talent pool.

Our services include:

  • Attracting First Nations applicants using culturally safe recruitment practices
  • Screening and matching First Nations candidates to the opportunity
  • Supporting and mentoring successful candidates in their employment journey.

We aim to provide progressive opportunities across a range of industries to support First Nations peoples starting their careers with dynamic skills, qualifications, and experience, while also adding value to your organisation and business. Through consultation with our business development team, we can tailor an employment model to support your business goals and provide an opportunity to our First Nations peoples.

Our partners have the flexibility to choose an employment model that suits them. Our current partners include:

  • Full-time, part-time and school-based traineeships for clients including large banks, local and state governments, arts, cultural and creative organisations and more.
  • Cadetships programs with organisations and more to support First Nations university students to gain industry experience and create valuable pathways in the business sector.
