Building community through local partnerships

RN Employment Services is a joint venture between Ngurratjuta/Pmara Ntjarra Aboriginal Corporation and RISE Ventures. RN Employment Services empowers communities, creates job opportunities, and supports social infrastructure through training, skills development, community development and employment programmes.

We are located in North and South Barkly Regions and South-West Alice Region, servicing many communities across the Northern Territory. Working with local people and stakeholders, we help drive local enterprise development, build skills and capacity of the communities, and deliver the Australian Federal Government’s Community Development Programme.

Community Development Program

The Community Development Programme (CDP) supports job seekers in remote Australia to build skills, address barriers and contribute to their communities through skills training, supporting social and physical infrastructure.

CDP is a vehicle for change for communities and individuals.

Community engagement

RN Employment Services partners with other community organisations and services to deliver locally-focused projects. Community engagement is at the core of our work and informs our strategies.

We meet regularly and work closely with local Community Advisory Boards, comprising Traditional Owners, elders, regional councils, educational and health and employment representatives local to the area we serve. We are thankful for their advice, insights and recommendations which help shape our service delivery so that the focus is on community and individual outcomes that are aligned with our stakeholders and customers. These outcomes focus on skills, training and employment but also take into account cultural and social, health and emotional wellbeing outcomes not just for individuals but for the community as a whole.

Opportunity discussions are also held regularly with other stakeholders including employers, councils, industry and Government bodies.
