Indigenous Mentoring

personal, professional and cultural

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are underserved and underrepresented within the Australian workforce.

We are trying to change that.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are underserved and within the Australian workforce.

We are trying to change that.

By providing a mixture of group and individualised community and culturally based mentoring to our Indigenous candidates, we are actively working to increase the number of Indigenous people joining and staying in the workforce. We work with the candidates and employers together to ensure a successful transition from unemployment to the workforce.

Our Indigenous Mentors work with candidates in preparation of starting employment and then continue to support them through their new role by:

  • Developing mentoring plans by setting out employment, personal, financial and health goals
  • Assistance to build self-esteem, competence, and confidence in the workplace
  • Assisting in the planning daily transport requirements
  • Providing practical life skills advice, health, and personal safety
  • Induction and familiarisation with new surroundings
  • Developing workplace reliability and work ethic
  • Collaborating with candidate family members and friends to acknowledge and accept the new responsibilities the candidate now has


We acknowledge that employing anyone who has been long-term unemployed comes with risks and challenges. Our Indigenous Mentoring program works to reduce and mitigate potential risks and set both candidate and employer up for success.
