Wunan awarded Remote Jobs and Communities Program!
27 June 2013
Wunan has been awarded the Remote Jobs and Communities Program for the two regions comprising the East Kimberley, in joint venture with East Kimberley CDEP. After a protracted period of submission and negotiation the award was made in April 2013, with commencement due July 1st. With very compressed timelines for implementation, staff are now working feverishly to establish the new organization and ensure job seekers receive a seamless and quality transition from previous providers.
The new company, East Kimberley Job Pathways (a 50/50 venture between Wunan and EKCDEP) will deliver the RJCP throughout the East Kimberley in both major population centres and remote communities. The RJCP is a case management model, providing individualized services based on need to job seekers. Close relationships with each community are designed to ensure that their employment objectives are met and that activities are conducted that prepare participants for the work force and add real value to the community. The program provides a single point of contact for job seekers, reducing confusion and increasing the delivery of real employment outcomes.
The RJCP is strategically aligned to Wunan’s philosophy of responsibility and reward for effort, and we are therefore very pleased to be engaged in this new program and continue to create opportunities for Aboriginal people to move into, and remain in, real jobs.
Sandra Mitchell, Manager – Employment Strategies at Wunan, has been appointed CEO of East Kimberley Job Pathways. Congratulations Sandra and good luck!
