Our commitment to corporate responsibility at Jobfind is a simple one, and sits under the strategy adopted by the wider Angus Knight Group.
It is only by fully integrating corporate responsibility into the way we do business that we can sustainably enhance our brand equity and stakeholder value. For us corporate responsibility means conducting our business so that we meet our financial, social and environmental responsibilities in an aligned way. At its core, it’s about having a set of core values and behaviours that underpin our everyday activities:
Treatment of our people
Supporting, encouraging and empowering our staff to learn and grow.
Attitudes to and treatment of clients
Putting people at the centre of everything we do, and treating all with dignity and respect.
Links within the community
Collaborating with our communities and organisations to create opportunity and strengthen capacity.
An element of our ‘corporate social investment’ is our charitable activities. In 2014 we will be supporting two organisations whose values align closely with ours.
1) Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF). ALNF is dedicated to raising language, literacy and numeracy standards in Australia and raises funds to develop, implement and sustain innovative projects for individuals, families and communities. They have been in operation as an official charity since 1998 with the aim of closing the literacy gap in Indigenous and migrant populations. ALNF works closely with a number of large organisations, Department of Employment, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, and other government representatives.
2) The Aurora Project
The Aurora Project aims to strengthen Indigenous organisations by supporting their staff and facilitating opportunities for all Australians to work. They also run projects aimed at improving educational outcomes for Indigenous Australians, by focussing on excellence in education. In 2014, we are supporting their work on The Aspiration Initiative (TAI). TAI aims to ‘increase opportunities and support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students, helping to ensure they realise their potential at school, university and beyond’. As well as academic excellence, there is a focus on strengthening identity and resilience, and creating a group of students who will support each other through school and further education for the 5½ year duration of the program.
