Young people

Empowering the next generation

We understand that young people suffer higher levels of unemployment than the general population – and we are dedicated to making a difference.

Being unemployed when you are young can mean losing out on training and vital employment skills, causing damage to long-term job prospects.

This can then put additional pressure on families and adversely affect mental wellbeing. Widespread youth unemployment can lead to a ‘lost generation’ that is socially excluded, trapped in poverty and disengaged from the wider community.

We provide support with respect and understanding

Across our network of businesses, we support young people with specialist services, founded on respect and understanding for their specific needs.


Jobfind supports young people to access work and education opportunities so they can start their careers, build on their skills and capabilities, and transition to in-demand industries.

In Australia, Jobfind delivers a specialised youth service in the Cairns Employment Region, called Workforce Australia – Transition to Work. In Transition to Work, young people aged 15-24 years receive one-on-one support from a youth mentor, tailored to their personal circumstances, and employment and education goals and ambitions. Eligible participants can also access free youth advisory sessions for career guidance and support.


uLaunch provides services to help young people living with a disability, illness or mental health issue including anxiety or depression to make the transition from school to work.
