The recently announced STEP ERS contract was awarded to Joblink Plus in these areas as a direct result of the outstanding high performance Joblink Plus has delivered with a similar indigenous program called Community Development Education Program (CDEP) in Dubbo.
Joblink Plus Dubbo continue to reach their targets with outcomes that have far exceeded all expectations and, as a result, have produced results which have benefited the whole community with associated flow on effects.
STEP ERS stands for ‘Structured Training and Employment Projects and Employment Related Services’, which provides a range of services specifically designed for Indigenous job seekers. The purpose of the program is to ensure that Indigenous job seekers move into and retain sustainable jobs. STEP ERS will offer pre-employment training and support services, employment placement services and mentoring, it will bring together Indigenous job seekers with employers in private industry and also community and government organisations who can provide training and long term jobs.
Paul Boyd, Senior Operations Manager for Joblink Plus said “This is very welcome news for our Joblink Plus offices as there is a definite need for indigenous specific programs in these areas. We have just started the recruiting process for a Co-ordinator in Tamworth and consultants which will be based in Tamworth, Moree and Narrabri. The consultants positions will be very hands on and an integral part of the indigenous communities in which they will operate. They will liaise with suitable host employers and program participants to ensure a successful delivery of the program”.
Joblink Plus will commence delivery of the STEP ERS program in late November.
