Committed community approach recognised for Joblink Plus
Joblink Plus, a for-purpose, not-for-profit organisation will continue to deliver employment and training support services to more than 100
communities across New South Wales.
As part of the Workforce Australia suite of programs tender results announced by the Federal Government, Joblink Plus will deliver services
to 80 communities across four Employment Regions resulting in a Workforce Australia active caseload increase of 20%.
Joblink Plus CEO Christine Shewry welcomed the announcement as an opportunity to reaffirm and further its commitment to ‘Close the Gap’ for
Indigenous Australians and work alongside grassroots community organisations.
“With the Workforce Australia announcement comes an enormous responsibility we are well prepared for. The Joblink Plus team of
community-focused local consultants are representative of the people we serve, with around 30% of staff identifying as Indigenous.
“As an organisation, we consider all decisions, commitments and strategies through the frameworks of Trauma Informed Practice, Ethics and
Reconciliation” Ms Shewry said.
Joblink Plus Board Chair David Green recognised the work of the Joblink Plus team in relation to the Workforce Australia tender
“Joblink Plus’ long-standing and experienced leadership team and dedicated frontline staff are committed to ongoing and expanding delivery
of meaningful outcomes for local individuals, families and communities” Mr Green said.
From 1 July 2022 at commencement of the new Workforce Australia contract, Joblink Plus will continue to strive for excellence in the
delivery of training and education leading to sustainable employment for Indigenous communities, the long term unemployed, young people and
parents. In addition, Joblink Plus is proud to deliver Disability Employment Services and National Disability Insurance Scheme services.
Joblink Plus is proud to partner with many organisations including, but not limited to:

New Funding for training
13 October 2020
Business owners across the New England are encouraged to seek more information about the JobMaker Hiring Credit announced in this week’s
federal budget to grow their business and employment opportunities in their community.
With years of experience, Joblink Plus Training is well-equipped to help business owners navigate the new incentive and the paperwork that
comes with it.
Birth Beat founder, Edwina Sharrock believes more local businesses could reap the multiple rewards of hiring a trainee like Mikala Ellis,
the winner of the New England Region 2020 NSW Training Awards.
“Mikala is so smart and talented – she’ll be running the show before we know it,” Ms Sharrock said.
“Mikala is a critical part of our scaling start-up, gaining experience and growing her skills every day, across every facet of the business.
The perspective she brings is invaluable,” she added.
Joblink Plus have supported Mikala in her traineeship, as well as Edwina in how to approach and manage the process to gain great outcomes
for her online business supporting new parents.
While Ms Sharrock was looking for a junior to learn the business from the ground up, Richelle Bukovac, Leader of Joblink Plus Training
Apprentice & Traineeship Programs said there are many looking for a change in career and an opportunity to expand their horizons.
“Trainees and apprentices can come from any walk of life and are eager to learn, no matter your business model or industry.”
“Traineeships are a great option for businesses and present a huge opportunity to pass on your skills and industry knowledge to someone keen
and ready to work,” Ms Bukovac said.
A traineeship provides an invaluable opportunity for job seekers to find meaningful employment, and for business owners to give something
back to the community.
David Green from Belmore Engineering says apprenticeships play an important part in his business along with the support of Joblink Plus.
“We’ve had quite a few apprentices over the years, sometimes coming to us straight from school ready to start their training and develop the
skills to set them up for a great career.
“It helps to know the support is there to manage the admin side of things too when you’re juggling all the responsibilities of running your
business and putting food on the table for your staff” he added.
Joblink Plus focuses on the individual needs and strengths of people when helping them get ready to work. With an emphasis on the
development of pre-employment skills and offering support through all stages of the job placement process, Joblink Plus aims to ensure that
young people have a positive experience when entering the workforce.
Statement regarding recent allegations
08 September 2020
It has been brought to our attention that allegations have been made toward Joblink Plus that we are allocating funds of up to $10,000 for
participants to purchase cars.
This is unequivocally false.
Support for participants and job seekers is provided under the strictest regulations and is always authorised and directly approved by the
relevant government Department.
Any decision regarding direct support or purchases made on behalf of participants or job seekers does not come from Joblink Plus funds. All
spending that assists participants and job seekers to work towards and attain employment comes from government funding and is strictly
regulated, monitored, and audited.
As a member of the Tamworth community and communities across NSW, Joblink Plus is committed to upholding our purpose:
We believe in and support all people, connecting them to the dignity and fulfilment
made possible through education and meaningful work.
Joblink Plus has informed the relevant government departments of the allegations made on social media and will continue to keep them fully
informed of any further developments.

We recognise that for many people in regional and rural communities our offices are a source of information and support - we love that
about our communities! We are still here to support all people, connecting them to the dignity and fulfilment made possible through
education and meaningful employment.
If you have an exceptional circumstance and do need to attend your local office strict precautions will be implemented and you must
follow instructions around maintaining physical space (social distancing) and personal hygiene (hand washing, tissues, and hand
sanitiser for example).
If you would like to discuss these changes and what they might mean for you, please call us on 1800 695 625. We will be making regular
updates on our website, via social media, and directly to the people we work with via phone call and SMS. Please follow us on Facebook
