Group commits to indigenous jobs

EMPLOYMENT Consultant Epic Assist officially launched its Reconciliation Action Plan in conjunction with Tweed indigenous communities on Wednesday morning.

The not-for-profit company launched the plan at the Aboriginal Cultural Museum in Tweed Heads to reinforce its commitment to Tweed’s indigenous Communities.

Epic Assist chief executive officer Bill Gamack said the launch was about cementing commitment and dedication to the indigenous community.

“What the Reconciliation Action Plan is about is making sure organisations like Epic have a plan in place to work with people of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander descent,” Mr Gamack said.

“It’s to make sure we understand their needs and can work with them to help them be the best they can be. In our case, that is getting them employment, either at Epic or one of our clients.”

Mr Gamack said Epic Assist was using the RAP launch to inform and help people know Epic was there as a part of the community.

“We’ve been in this region for a long time, we’ve had a number of staff employed here and we’re here for the long term,” Mr Gamack said.

About 30 people attended the launch.
