Indigenous Workforce Program

NQCCS P/L creates Indigenous jobs in remote communities.

In the Torres Strait and NPA, Joe Di Bella from North Queensland Commercial Consulting Services (NQCCS) Pty Ltd has partnered with local cleaning and gardening contractor Roy Boiiz Cleaning and Gardening Services, tailoring training courses to train and mentor their staff on grounds maintenance and cleaning.

Training delivered to Roy Boiiz has helped the company develop its business plan and a better understanding of the competitive tendering process.

Roy Pearce of Roy Boiiz said the partnership had already seen the company increase its workforce from four to seven.

“A training curriculum has been tailored to suit participants in this program and as a result our employees have successfully completed Telstra’s induction process,” Mr Pearce said.

“There are plans to extend training to include general pest control, noxious weeds and mosquito control.

“We hope our workforce will continue to grow thanks to this pilot project, and look forward to continuing our work with NQCCS who have committed to provide training and mentoring locally in communities to support us.”
