We work with many different types of disadvantaged job seekers including but not limited to: young people struggling to get their first job, long-term unemployed, people seeking asylum and refugees, those with a culturally and linguistically diverse background, people with a disability and Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders.
We’ll advise you on what you’ll need to be job ready – this may include training in the industry, or training on how to look and apply for work.
Given the Chance provides additional support to both jobseekers and employers that is not always available through Job Services Australia agencies. Job seekers do not have to be on a Centrelink benefit to make full use of Given the Chance services.
We take care of everything. We verify appropriate visas, provide English language skills and numeracy training, meet any specific compliance or accreditation requirements, organise traineeships and work experience, and screen for specialist skills. We also support the supervisor/manager and candidate every step of the way, both on and off the job.
Given the Chance has a range of programs that include free, fee-for-service and Labour Hire options. To talk to a consultant, email gtc(at)bsl.org.au.
All employment services provided to job seekers through Given the Chance are free.
Given the Chance receives vacancies from a range of employers. These have included work in hospitality, asset maintenance, warehousing, construction, administration and technical fields in entry-level, trade and professional roles.
