Break Thru to get a job
NOT-FOR-PROFIT organisation Break Thru has opened its doors in Mossman to help community members find a job regardless of age, qualifications or if they have a disability.
North Queensland regional manager Therese Muller said the organisation is a free service for Centrelink-registered job seekers and employers looking to recruit or be recruited and they also provide training programs.
“It was a family company that saw a need to support the disadvantaged people locally and received government contracts to assist on a great scale and it has grown from there, it started in NSW,” she said.
“Break Thru offers a very high quality service to support clients based on their individual needs and will attempt to provide a holistic service not just employment needs, social needs, mental health needs and monetary needs.
“We ensure whoever comes to us has a positive and reward- ing experience and finds sustainable and meaningful employment.”
Ms Muller said while the service is predominantly for those on Centrelink services, they provide a different service for clients not on a payment and there are limited services for backpackers.
For people with a disability, Break Thru will help find suitable employment and also work with employers and provide assistance.
“People with disability look- ing for work who don’t know where to start, we have contacts with employers and we also assist employers to get the best match and make sure everyone is happy in the placement in the long run,” Ms Muller said.
Break Thru in Mossman can be found at 3/7 Mill Rd, Mossman. You can call 4099 9200 or email Mossman@breakthru. org.au and Break Thru will come to Port Douglas every Monday at the Port Douglas Neighbourhood Centre from July 16.
