RAWsa works with Council on Indigenous employment
RAWsa is working with Council and our contractor CAMCO SA to actively achieve employment outcomes for Aboriginal People across the councils boundaries.
The Kensington Gardens Reserve Project has provided over 2000 hours of indigenous workforce participation in the first three months of this project which equates into 4 full time positions working operationally on the ground. The Council's commitment in reconciliation has invested in a RAWsa employed, Kaurna Yerta Aboriginal Corporation (KYAC) endorsed, Aboriginal Workforce Participation Officer (AWPO), who’s role is to maximise Aboriginal workforce participation.
Activation of the AWPO has provided skilled Aboriginal operators opportunities for employment across the principle and subcontractors, as well as provided the project with access to Kaurna community consultants engaged for community interaction workshops with local Kindergartens and other key stakeholders activities.
#realjobs #realoutcomes cannot be achieved without the hard work and a collaborative commitment from the Burnside Council Steering Committee, Burnside Council Project team, CAMCO SA and the team working within the RAWsa Heritage Environment and Repatriation Strategy.
