New Careers for Aboriginal People

About NCAP

New Careers for Aboriginal People (NCAP) is a program operating across New South Wales. It is aimed at increasing the participation of Aboriginal people in the workforce by:
identifying or creating opportunities
supporting employees and employers to ensure sustainable employment
identifying education and training opportunities for workers or potential workers.

The work of the NCAP program is carried out by Aboriginal Employment Advisors. Our Aboriginal Employment Advisor is Darren Wright (pictured).

Role of the Aboriginal Employment Advisor

Aboriginal Employment Advisors are available to assist Aboriginal people in identifying and overcoming barriers to education, training and employment.

An Aboriginal Employment Advisor can help by:
establishing contacts with relevant Government agencies to ensure education, training and employment services are available
offering advice in relation to employment, career planning, resume writing, writing a job application, job interview techniques
looking for employment opportunities with employers
developing relationships with Job Services Australia providers
staying in touch with organisations and individuals that may be seen as a local resource for job-seekers
referring clients for training and employment opportunities.

Please contact Darren if you need assistance.
