CIS’s Indigenous Employment Program
Our indigenous employment in Australia program is a three-way handshake between the indigenous communities, corporates entities and the team of CIS. It involves working on two levels –
The essence of education can never be ignored, especially if it is about uplifting a community. Our education programs are tailor-made and designed by specialists from the industry. The programs are designed to offer maximum exposure and knowledge to the indigenous youths facilitating them to step out of the darkness and embrace newer learnings.
Our indigenous employment program is based on these two pillars of education and vocational training. With comprehensive programs, young community members get skill training on different aspects helping them get ready for the Australian job market.
CIS’s indigenous employment in Australia is not only about knowledge sharing and imparting learnings but also about bridging the gap that exists between the corporate world and the indigenous community. We have taken it upon ourselves to help the business world understand the importance of giving this community an opportunity to work with them and contribute meaningfully towards the development of this community.
So, while we prepare the young and employable from the indigenous community to go out, work and realise their dreams, we associate with job providers under our indigenous employment in Australia program. CIS believes in delivering realistic and practical goals to the local community of Australia so that they are empowered, have a positive future to look forward to and get wider acceptance amongst the non-indigenous population of the country.
