Ready4Work

Jobfind’s own employment preparation program delivered to in our centres. The program can be individually tailored to the needs of those using it, meaning you’ll receive the skills and assistance you need to become, you guessed it, ‘Ready4Work’.

Ready4Work is run in fun and dynamic group sessions by an experienced facilitator. This same facilitator will also meet with you one-on-one to work on a plan that ensures you get the help and assistance needed to become ‘job ready’. Activities focus on increasing motivation, routine, participation and confidence. Ready4Work is very flexible and is never the same in two different sessions or areas. Remember, this isn’t school, it’s a method of ensuring you’re ready to secure that great job.

Ready2Go

This program an offshoot of Ready4Work which helps you identify issues in your current circumstances and then find the solutions and support available to you. These courses provide practical advice to help you overcome any barriers and get on with life and work.

We understand that there may be things going on in your life that have nothing to do with work. Certain issues that may stop you in your tracks, on the way to getting a great job. Ready2Go is a program developed to help participants identify and address ‘roadblocks’ to employment. Ready2Go courses focus on building or improving life skills to bring you closer to looking for, getting and keeping a job.

How Ready2Go Works

There are a few different courses that you can complete at your local Jobfind Centre with an experienced facilitator. Our skilled facilitators will help you work through and complete the courses, which are chosen with your circumstances and goals in mind. Some of the areas you can focus on include:

  • Accessing Community Services – choosing and accessing suitable community services.
    Accommodation – understanding, accessing and maintaining accommodation.
  • Positive Parenting – promoting parental confidence and helping develop skills to deal with challenging behaviour.
  • Personal Awareness and Self Discovery – building self-esteem and learning to value individual qualities.
  • Dealing with Stress – developing awareness and strategies to manage personal stress, anger and frustration.

JobsNOW

A ‘skills profiler’ which creates a snapshot of your strengths and can suggest the jobs and industries that may suit you. By recording your current skills, qualifications and licences, your Jobfind consultant will be able to match you to current vacancies available. You will also receive a report highlighting any training gaps which Jobfind can then help you fill, giving you the best chance of gaining the right job.

Group activities

Each week we run a series of group activities tailored to the needs of our participants to choose from and opportunities in the local community. You will get hands-on practice at resume writing, interview techniques and much more.

External training

To help you increase your skills and find the job that’s right for you, Jobfind can help you arrange and enrol in external education courses or accredited training of your choice. We have a great relationship with TAFE, local Community Colleges and Registered Training Organisations.

Your Jobfind consultant will discuss with you the best training options for you to achieve your employment goals.
