Employment Pathways
Description

Reclink Australia’s Pathways to Employment provides opportunities for young people and long term unemployed members of the community to re-enter the workforce.

Reclink Australia believes in the power of opening doors to employment and careers for people experiencing disadvantage such as unemployment.

Unemployment can have a compounding effect on other aspects of disadvantage a person might be experiencing, such as mental health and social isolation, and drug and alcohol abuse.

Whether it be mentorship, education, or employment, we continue to grow the range of opportunities available to participants. These includes our Transformational Links programs, which provides opportunities for participants to gain an AFL Level 1 Sports Trainer certificate or training as a registered umpire.

In Queensland, Reclink Australia delivers Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQFW) projects across Beaudesert, Logan, Caboolture, Crestmead, and Bundaberg. The SQFW program provides opportunities for unemployed young people who have experienced significant personal or educational disadvantage to gain a qualification in either Conservation and Land Management or Construction. Across all of the SQFW programs, we have achieved an impressive 83% rate of ongoing employment for trainees, with a further 12% going on to further training programs.

Our Pathways to Employment program has recently been expanded with the establishment of the Reclink Disability Employment Service (DES) in Bundaberg, to enable unemployed people with disability to enter employment.

Are you a person with a disability, an injury or a health condition? It's our job to assist you to find work!

Reclink Australia offers a Disability Employment Service with a difference. We recognise the importance for all people in being able to find and keep meaningful employment, to feel valued in your workplace and making a positive contribution to local business in the Bundaberg region. We will support you every step of the way - from obtaining the necessary medical information, guiding you through the assessment process, accessing training or upskilling and ongoing support since you move into a job. Our understanding staff are highly skilled with extensive experience in assisting people to overcome barriers and gain the job they want.
