Birubi offers Labour Hire recruitment for jobseekers as well as extensive ongoing candidate support to ensure the highest levels of retention and engagement.
We align your company and workplace requirements to match jobseekers to suit the needs and culture of your business.
We utilise our extensive network including JobActive and other agencies, as well as our own Indigenous community networks to source jobseekers that meet the requirements of the position.
We complete an initial assessment to evaluate that the jobseekers meet client expectations, specifically regarding skill level, aptitude and aspirations.
We have experience in designing and delivering successful pre-employment programs for specific industry areas, tailored to the client. Elements include sessions that:
-Assist job seekers to become work ready.
-Address the prerequisite workplace requirements in terms of skill and behaviour.
-Identify and address any potential and existing barriers to successful workplace participation.
Job seekers will be supported through the business induction process, addressing organisation policies, procedures, systems and technology. Cultural competency training and workplace culture awareness is provided to the job seekers and nominated new work colleagues and supervisors.
We provide Indigenous mentor support for up to the first six months of the program to work closely with the participants and with management to trouble shoot issues arising that impact on workplace engagement and productivity.
Post Placement Support
Post placement mentoring and support is accessible for up to six months after the job seeker starts employment ensuring a high level of retention is achieved.
We can assist with the application process for Indigenous wage subsidies as well as applications for an additional wage subsidy for all eligible job seekers that come through the pre-employment programs.
Indigenous Participation Plans (IPP)
The purpose of the Indigenous Participation Plan (IPP) is to stimulate Indigenous entrepreneurship and business development, providing Indigenous Australians with more opportunities to participate on the economy. The actions to achieve this are identified through the Commonwealth Indigenous Procurement Policy (July 2015) and direct contractors to increase purchasing from Indigenous enterprises and increase the employment of Indigenous Australians.
The South Australian Government has captured this intent in the SA Industry Participation Plan, providing greater weighting in tenders where the tenderer can demonstrate:
-How it will increase procurement from local SA Aboriginal owned businesses.
-That it can provide training and employment opportunities for local Aboriginal workers through the contract.
As an Aboriginal owned business, Birubi has a natural commitment to both Aboriginal business procurement and employment of Aboriginal workers. Our approach is through an integrated plan with sustainable outcomes for each project that we deliver. Our relationship with local Aboriginal business owners and our community network, ensure that every contract is an opportunity to deliver on ambitious targets in regard to the participation of local traditional owner groups in the work that we do. For this reason Birubi is ideally positioned to assist companies and contractors with the development, design and delivery of their local Indigenous Participation Plans and we offer this as a consultancy service.
We have assisted a number of Tier 1 companies and a range of Tier 2 contractors in developing their IPP (Australian Government Defence projects) and their Tailored SA Industry Participation Plans with an Indigenous focus for civil and construction projects in urban, regional and remote locations in SA. Our team is dedicated to working with businesses, government agencies and Indigenous communities to improve life opportunities for Indigenous Australians and close the gap on education and employment outcomes.
