Indigenous Employment Pathway Program launched

Job Centre Australia (JCAL) has officially launched the McDonald’s Indigenous Employment Pathway Program on the Central Coast.

Funded by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, the program aims to place Indigenous jobseekers into sustainable employment within McDonald’s restaurants.

The partnership between McDonald’s and JCAL has seen over 300 people with disabilities employed, whilst providing quality training and support in the workplace.

The expansion of this partnership to provide a specifi c program for Indigenous jobseekers demonstrates both McDonald’s and JCAL’s commitment to working within the local communities and sourcing jobs for Indigenous jobseekers.

To ensure a culturally appropriate and successful program, JCAL has employed Indigenous trainer, Ms Janet Saunders, to assist Indigenous jobseekers with their smooth transition into the various roles available within the program.

JCAL has successfully placed three Indigenous jobseekers within the McDonald’s Indigenous Pathway Program and aims to place a further seven by December 31, 2015.

Job Centre Australia is proud to be creating employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and is committed to the Closing the Gap initiatives.

The program is managed and facilitated by Job Centre Australia’s Indigenous Co-ordinator, Mr Jason Solomon.
