Centacare Brisbane boosts services for job seekers

The Centacare Catholic welfare agency in the Archdiocese of Brisbane is expanding the operations of its job seeker support service Centacare Brisbane.

The organisation has recently opened new Job Network offices at three suburban locations in Brisbane. This follows the highly succesful Brown Plains office, which has been operating since February 2000.

The Department of Employment and Workplace Relations has repeatedly awarded the Browns Plains office four and a half stars (out of five) for its level of commitment to placing the right person in the right job.

A statement from the Archdiocese says Centacare Employment "prides itself on employing fully trained staff with positive attitudes to assist job seekers in finding job placement".

Centacare's Employment Services Manager Vicki Matheson said Centacare receives positive recognition for a focus on unemployed people that includes the more disadvantaged.

"There's no discrimination in terms of who we service or who we employ," Ms Matheson said. "The benefits of getting unemployed people into work while providing a valuable service to employers is reflected in the positive attitude of the local community towards us.
