Workskills and Catholic Care recently collaborated to assist our Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) into employment with various Orchards for Fruit Picking work.
We contacted and referred over 20 job seekers to Catholic Care for suitability appointments and registration. From there we supported this client group with manual handling training, clothing/PPE and travel expenses in order to commence work.
Our Clients commenced employment with various Fruit Orchards and have since gone on to other Vineyard work after getting their foot in the door with recent work history.
Many of our CALD Clients struggle to find their own employment due to low level LLN and lack of labour market knowledge. This collaboration has been a success and assisting Clients to move forward.
