Indigenous Employment Partnership Sees Results

28 March 2016

Wunan’s Indigenous Employment Broker program has seen immediate results with three local Indigenous people commencing work at Coles Kununurra over the past few weeks.

The exciting new partnership between Wunan and Wesfarmers aims to support local Indigenous people into roles in Wesfarmers-owned businesses in Kununurra over the next twelve months.

Wunan CEO Christian Zahra said the partnership was an exciting initiative that would provide increased employment opportunities.

“This employment partnership with Wesfarmers provides a fantastic opportunity for Indigenous people locally to gain entry-level jobs in local businesses, such as Coles Kununurra, and I’d really encourage people who are keen to work to get involved.”

As part of the partnership, and with funding support from Wesfarmers, Wunan has employed Zoe Dudley in the role of Indigenous Employment Coordinator.

Ms Dudley’s role is to work closely with local Wesfarmers businesses to understand opportunities and provide tailored support to job seekers throughout the application process and during their employment.

Wunan encourages any local Indigenous people interested in taking part in the program to call Zoe Dudley directly on 0455 545 072.
