Indigenous Employment Solutions
BUSY works closely with organisations, businesses and communities to create and provide work opportunities for Indigenous Australians.
As a member of the Indigenous Employment Panel, BUSY At Work is contracted by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) to provide pre-employment training, mentoring and job placement projects to Indigenous Australians.
Our experienced Indigenous consultants assist employers with the skills and cultural knowledge necessary to provide sustainable employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians. In turn, they also work with the local communities to prepare Indigenous Australians to take up job opportunities and enhance their employment prospects.
Each project is individualised, taking into consideration local and regional community conditions and specific client needs.
BUSY has several innovative projects which have been delivered in Queensland. These include:
Smashcare Project – Brisbane
Designed to recruit and train Indigenous job seekers for work in the panel beating and spray painting industry. BUSY worked with Smashcare to source positions and support the transition to permanent employment and completion of apprenticeships.
Aged Care / Hospitality Industry Project - Gladstone / Bundaberg / Rockhampton
BUSY worked with local communities in the Gladstone and Bundaberg region to source and provide work opportunities for Indigenous Australians in the Aged Care and Hospitality Industry.
