Supporting our Indigenous candidates
Employment Plus has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Aboriginal Resource Group (ARG) in an effort to assist more talented Indigenous candidates into work. ARG Managing Director, Cory Robertson said, “We see a lot of Aboriginal sports stars doing well – in the public limelight. Our goal is to see more of our people highlighted for their success in the business world. We are confident with our unique understanding of this group, and Employment Plus’ track record, that we’ll soon be reporting positive results from this joint partnership.”
