East Kimberley Job Pathways

8 December 2014

East Kimberley Job Pathways (EKJP) is a joint venture between Wunan and East Kimberley CDEP. EKJP operates the Remote Jobs and Communities Program (RJCP) and we have previously reported the challenges of getting the business up and running and the program implemented.

However 18 months on, the organisation is well established and starting to deliver the results envisaged.

A representative of Prime Minister  & Cabinet recently met with the EKJP Board and reported that EKJP’s performance was above average, that compliance was robust, and the organisation was well run.This was a strong endorsement for CEO Sandra Mitchell who is, sadly, moving on; to be replaced by Trevor Halamicek who is charged with taking EKJP to the next level. While the RJCP has its challenges , Wunan is focussed on delivering real outcomes on the ground; engaging with, upskilling and encouraging people into permanent employment and driving toward a reduction in welfare dependency.

Many thanks Sandra for all your hard work in getting EKJP up and running, and welcome Trevor to bigger and better outcomes.
