Job Centre Australia and the Gosford RSL are continuing to grow their partnership to provide people with disability an opportunity for employment.

Job Centre Australia CEO Mr Chris Connor said: “I commend the RSL for their commitment to social responsibility demonstrated in their partnership with our organisation.” “This conviction to pay it forward in our local community has given a number of our clients an opportunity to re-enter the workforce.” The Gosford RSL has employed two staff through Job Centre Australia and envisages continuing this association to give others an opportunity to also gain employment. Adam Parker, who suffered from an acquired brain injury, is the latest recruit to be employed by the RSL. Gosford RSL’s CEO Mr Russell Cooper said: “I welcome the opportunity to hire someone with a disability through Job Centre Australia. “People with disabilities are able to make a positive contribution to the workplace. “Adam, who we have recently hired, is a good example. “He’s positive, friendly and happy and he is doing a great job. “Thanks to Job Centre Australia, the process has been very simple and rewarding.” Gosford RSL is leading the way as it intends to increase this commitment to employing people with a disability, to five or more this year. Job Centre Australia is a local not-for-profit organisation and now has sites throughout NSW and Queensland. It is committed to developing further partnerships to impact local community wellbeing.
