Souths Cares to Launch Indigenous Employment Program
Souths Cares will launch their Indigenous Employment Program, Ngalya Banga, on Friday 8 August at NRL Central in Moore Park – an initiative that will provide employment opportunities for the local Indigenous community.
With the support of experienced Souths Cares Indigenous Mentors, as well as the Rabbitohs Corporate Family and local employers, Indigenous job seekers will have the opportunity to be guided throughout the journey of securing fulfilling and rewarding long-term employment.
Backed by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, the IEP program is one that Souths Cares General Manager, Mr Shannon Donato says will provide a raft of opportunities to local Indigenous job-seekers.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the local community,” said Mr Donato.
“Indigenous job seekers are encouraged and are welcome to turn-up to hear about a program that will be providing jobs from our great sponsors and corporate family.”
But it’s not just prospective employees who are being encouraged to attend. Potential employers are also encouraged to attend the event to hear about rebates, benefits and support that the new program could offer to those involved.
“This program looks at a whole-community approach,” said Mr Donato.
“Obviously we’re looking to arm our job-seekers with the necessary skills to attain fulfilling and rewarding long-term employment, but it’s also about spreading the word to other potential employers who could also stand to benefit.
The launch will be a catered event in the Learning with League Centre at NRL Central Moore Park.
All those who attend and register to receive more information, will receive a free ticket to the Rabbitohs’ round 22 clash with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, directly following the launch at the neighboring Sydney Cricket Ground.
Attendees will also go into the draw to win a money-can’t-buy game day experience with the Rabbitohs.
