Youth Employment Services


Are you a young job seeker who isn’t quite sure what’s expected of you in the workplace? 

The Transition to Work program is an Australian Government initiative that provides youth employment services and support for young people to help them gain employment or further education. The service aims to help build skills and confidence to enter the workforce. We have experience working with young people who have left school early or who have had difficulty entering employment after school.

“I love my job here… the horses that I work with and I’m outside every day in this beautiful arena that I ride in every day. It’s just awesome, I love it so much. I am now studying a Diploma in Rural Operations and Equine Services and have a new lease on life”.
