Breaking the Poverty and Dependency Cycle
Our ‘ JOB FIT JOB READY’ program is our difference. The program has been successfully integrated into our business and operational planning to meet the single vision of “Breaking the Poverty and Dependency Cycle” of Aboriginal people and the communities they live in.
While this program has received limited financial support from the NT Government, as a demonstration of our commitment, each contract will continue to invest a substantial portion of its budget in this program.
We strongly believe that our program can be applied to other industries, particularly in the housing sector. This is one reason why it is our priority to team up with many local competent builders who share our vision, values and beliefs.
JOB FIT JOB READY Program
The secret of our business success is striking the right balance of being ‘ JOB FIT JOB READY. This enables us to meet the legislative contractual requirements of the Northern Territory and the Australian Government while creating a competent local civil and construction workforce.
