Indigenous Employment Initiatives

For nearly three decades CEG has been successfully partnering with First Australians, and the communities they live within, delivering meaningful and lasting  employment, training  and career pathways.

By collaboratively working with Industry Groups, Businesses, all levels of government and our South Australian wide network of employers CEG has secured many hundreds of sustainable employment outcomes for Indigenous Job Seekers .

Our Group Training Division (Apprenticeships and Traineeships) forms an important part of our partnership with First Australians and the employment market. Group Training provides Indigenous employees with the opportunity to enter the workforce, train and develop their skills while earning a wage.  Many of CEG's former Group Training Indigenous employees have successfully completed their training and have gone on to be supervisors, managers and leaders in their field. ( More than 25 % of our apprentices and trainees identify as Indigenous).

CEG's Labour Hire arm provides employment flexibility to employers wanting to take on Indigenous staff but who can't offer the tenure of permanent employment. CEG works with the indigenous recruit, conducts all pre employment testing, including pre employment medicals, and ensures that all placements are mutually rewarding.   
 
CEG has extensive experience in developing and delivering successful Indigenous employment and training projects specifically tailored to the needs job seekers and local employers. With a combination of industry specific skills training, the development of employability and job readiness skills and with a network of employers across most regions of South Australia. All at CEG  are proud of our Indigenous programs* and CEG i*s committed to reach our targets to Close the Gap of Indigenous Employment disparity. (hyperlink to where we list successful project)

CEG Registered Training Organisation "Training Partnerships" offers indigenous participants genuine up-skilling tailored towards both indigenous job seekers and current indigenous employees. Our nationally accredited courses  have been developed with the needs of industry and business foremost in mind and our success with Indigenous pathway development through training and up skilling has been exemplary.

With a team of versatile consultants that service most areas of South Australia  CEG has developed a network of partners to ensure that Indigenous Job Seekers can access every employment pathway opportunity available. Our partnerships with employers and our ongoing participant mentoring and support ensure that the needs of employers and employees always ensure a "best fit" outcome.  
We pride ourselves on our ability to successfully work  with schools, DES and JSA providers, Indigenous Community leaders and organisations, all levels of government, Industry Sector groups, Regional Development Organisations and our state wide network of employers has enabled us to exceed our Indigenous Employment targets and share in our success with all stakeholders.
