The year of 2017 saw over 30 job seekers successfully gain & hold employment within Ernabella Community. All job seeker employees have thrived within their individual duties, contributing to Ernabella by working. A resounding factor throughout all employees is growth, engagement & willing participation. Employee duties have ranged from activity supervisors, support workers, Anangu education officers, store assistants, administration, personal care assistants to local management and night patrol.

We pride ourselves on closely supporting our job seekers, providing employment opportunities and developing skills and potential, by putting them through training and courses to obtain certificates or qualifications (first aid, RAN training or driver’s licence). We offer direction, guidance and understanding and we emphasise the importance of developing consistency and a positive attitude towards work and routine. We have found that promoting and encouragement of education and hard work backed with mentoring and support has proven to be key in sustaining job seeker employment and the evolving of work ethic.

We conduct post placement support on a weekly basis to ensure employees are supported in their role and to offer continuous assistance. Through post placement support we have found job seekers to be happy and proud of their current achievements in their role.

Our goal in the future is to maintain our service support and encouragement. We also want to increase Anangu employment rates and job sustainability by a continued focus around the importance of working and engaging actively within the community.



Skill Hire really helped me to see that I can accomplish something if I set my mind to it and I completed my course 2 months prior to the completion date. Cheers guys!


Skill Hire are helpful and professional. Nicola was attentive to all my needs. Their timesheets systems were a breeze and always update us with messages. Thanks Skill Hire


I just wanted to thank Skill Hire's EST Trainers. Nathan is the absolute best trainer I’ve ever had privilege to meet by a WIDE margin and I appreciate everything done for all of us. I’m ecstatic about the internship opportunity.


Not only did Skill Hire respond quickly to our urgent need, your team took the time to understand our organization and our needs. The people sent to help out were outstanding and their ability to rapidly adapt to our workplace eased our burden during what was a very challenging few months.


My son has thoroughly enjoyed the Construction Pathways course. He spent the last 18 months being home schooled and not socializing with anyone so to see him eager to get up and leave the house every day still blows my mind. Simon, thank you for your understanding and taking extra care with my son.


I wanted to say a big thank you to Skill Hire and the team, especially Wayne for such an amazing experience for our students. All of our students were thoroughly engaged with the course and learned many valuable skills.
