The Coles First Steps pro­gram. Help­ing em­ploy over 3000 In­dige­nous team mem­bers.

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

At Coles, we’re proud to an­nounce that we now em­ploy more than 3,000 In­dige­nous team mem­bers across Aus­tralia – the equiv­a­lent of three per­cent of all our team mem­bers, and rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the In­dige­nous pop­u­la­tion across Aus­tralia.

One of the ways we have achieved this mile­stone is through Coles First Steps, a ded­i­cated In­dige­nous em­ploy­ment pro­gram that sup­ports those look­ing for em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties at their lo­cal Coles stores.

For team mem­bers like Tina, from Nikinya coun­try, West Kim­berly, Coles First Steps made her ‘feel proud to see so many of my peo­ple step up for the chal­lenge’ and through the sup­port and men­tor­ing she re­ceived, Tina now en­joys work­ing at Coles Ex­press Kwinana.

It’s pro­grams like Coles First Steps that help en­sure our work­force is rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Aus­tralian com­mu­ni­ties in which we op­er­ate.
