Community News

Employment Plus enjoys the support of many organisations across the community, working collaboratively to assist people into work. Our partners include on-hire employment providers, TAFEs and industry bodies. Importantly, other not-for-profit and government organisations support our job seekers by providing Work for the Dole placements, where work-like experience can be gained.

If you can offer a Work for the Dole placement we’d love to hear from you.

Employment Plus puts on family focused workshops for parents
Employment Plus held two special family focused workshops – It Takes a Village – for parents living in the Northern suburbs of Adelaide. Parents in the Ingle Farm and Gawler regions heard about the various support resources available to them, with the kids entertained by a magician, face painting and play equipment. Family and relationships expert, Sian Jaquet, provided parents with useful tips on how to navigate through all manner of parenting, life and work challenges and those interested could also participate in a drumming workshop. ParentsNext is an initiative by the federal government, which provides support to parents during the five year period between birth and their return to work, as kids near school age.
