If you're an Aboriginal person looking to get into training, find employment or further your career there is a range of culturally sensitive training, employment and career support services available to assist you.
Your local Jobs and Skills Centre has experience helping Aboriginal jobseekers in Western Australia choose a training course or find their career path and employment.
If you're an employer looking for resources, advice or support on recruitment and retention strategies to make your workplaces and employment practices more culturally sensitive and welcoming to Aboriginal people, we can help.
"I was looking for a change and opportunity to build on my career when I contacted the team at my local Jobs and Skills Centre.
They connected me with employment opportunities and assisted with the application process. Since then I have successfully secured a job with a top tier employer and would encourage more of my mob to access this service."
