Jobfind’s innovative partnerships improve the lives of Hunter region job seekers
Jobfind, a business of the Angus Knight Group, today announces its partnership with iGym 247, Solid 101, and the Hunter Youth and Training Services (HYTS) in the Hunter region of NSW. The partnership is designed to motivate and engage youth in finding sustainable employment. The program looks beyond traditional training methods, instead tailoring an employment solution that holistically prepares participants for work in mind and body. The program offers Jobfind’s Hunter region registered job seekers, a blend of certified vocational training of their choice, personal mentoring, coaching and access to a contract-free 30 day gym membership for $30.
To celebrate the partnership:
Jobfind Wallsend will host an open day on Tuesday, September 24 from 10–12 noon located on the Ground Floor of the Summaland Centre.
Jobfind Kurri Kurri will host an open day on Thursday September 26 from 10–12 noon in the Business Enterprise Centre, Cnr Barton and Merthyr Streets.
The open day will offer more information on vocational training opportunities including the Certificate III in Fitness, delivered by ex-NRL player Mark McGaw, of the McGaw Institute of Sport Science, along with non-vocational programs such as ‘Breaking the Mould’ and Solid 101. These programs have proven effective in assisting job seekers in the Hunter Region to secure work experience and positive employment outcomes in facilities like iGym 247. Ambassador for the program Mark Hutton, current Australian Middle Weight ‘Total Fighting’ Champion and Pan Pacific Jujitsu Champion, will be on hand to answer questions about Solid 101.
Jobfind is also holding a media launch at Kurri Kurri iGym 247 on Wednesday September 4 at 11am with all of the Solid 101 participants from Maitland, Cessnock and Kurri Kurri for their first combined gym session. Graduates will share their experiences about how the program turned their lives around and helped them secure meaningful employment.
The success of a recent partnership between Jobfind and HYTS will shortly be demonstrated through the graduation of over 60 job seekers at Jobfind Cessnock on the 18th of September. The graduates, predominantly Youth and Early School Leavers from across the Hunter region, have successfully “broken the mould” with 61% of the Cessnock graduates having already found meaningful employment as a result.
