The Community Development Program (CDP) is focused on creating a skilled Tiwi workforce through the delivery of high quality employment and activity services.
Our aim is to be the ‘go to’ employment service for local employers. We are committed to understanding the requirements of individual business owners, and ensuring that job seekers are trained according to the needs of the labour market.
We constantly scan the jobs market to identify permanent, seasonal and external employment opportunities for Tiwi people. We know what jobs are available on the open market, and also look out for hidden job opportunities such as newly created positions or emerging business and employment opportunities.
Importantly, we work with job seekers to prepare them for work, with activities and training to build confidence and job-specific skills. We also help people prepare for job interviews with resumes and interview skills, and can accompany them to interviews if requested.
