Sunraysia Regional Consulting Inc. (SRC) manages an Indigenous Employment Program (IEP) that places Aboriginal jobseekers with employers in the Mildura, Sunraysia, Robinvale, Broken Hill, Swan Hill & Balranald regions.
The Program is funded by Australian Government, and it includes established links with Job networks, Australian Apprenticeship Centres and Indigenous agencies.
Pre-Employment training with all indigenous job seekers is an integral part of the service to ensure the success of the program.Indigenous Employment
The Australian Government announced the Indigenous Employment Policy in May 1999 against a background of continued disadvantage of Indigenous Australians in the labour market. Indications from research studies showed that population growth would result in a worsening position and an over-reliance on the public sector to create employment opportunities for Indigenous people.
