Centacare Employment achieves outstanding results

Catholic Welfare Australia has commended Centacare Employment sites for their outstanding results in the Job Network Star ratings, with 70% of sites achieving 4 stars or more.

This result is double the Job Network average.

The Job Network Star Ratings system is the mechanism implemented by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations in measuring the success of Job Network providers in the delivery of their service.

"This result is a testament to the Centacare Employment sites and the excellence in service they have provided to both the Job Seekers and Employers in their local communities," said Catholic Welfare Australia chairperson Fr Joe Caddy (pictured).

"We are proud that our basic principle of treating people with dignity and respect is achieving results in assisting people who are unemployed into gainful employment."

Fr Caddy attributed the success in part to the major upgrade to the quality of services that has been facilitated by the introduction new service standards based on Centacare's primary organisational value of respect for the dignity of the people they assist.

"The commitment of the Church to social justice is much more than words, it finds concrete expression in the work of our agencies which actively assist people who are unemployed into worthwhile, sustainable and dignified jobs," Fr Caddy concluded.
