Indigenous Employment Australia Presentation
We utilise the skills of forward thinking, innovative and highly experienced consultants to bring about real change and fresh ideas to the implementation of projects that will create long term benefits to Indigenous communities and those proposing to do business on traditionally owned land.
Access Community Engagement Services is a non-government business that works directly with Indigenous organisations to develop sustainable business opportunities that increase Indigenous employment in the long term.
Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: As a website with a relatively general name and little information on its origins in the “About Us” section, Indigenous Employment Australia is difficult to place. The visibility is unknown and their social media is lacking (33 130 Facebook followers but no Twitter fans). Furthermore, their website is not https:// protected and the job offers aren’t updated. That didn’t stop us checking out the entire website though.
Design: The design is more than adequate and the colours are mostly earthy. We particularly like the boomerang logo. On the homepage, three aspects of the site are featured: the jobseeker portal, the recruiter portal and the blog (which has four articles, one of which announced the end of the blog). The job offers can be filtered by the location, the type of contract, the salary, the category or the publication date. You can also use the search engine in three parts (keywords, location, and radius). Most of the job offers include the company, the state, the location, the job type, the salary and when the job offer expires. If it has expired, they warn users that the advert might no longer be relevant. Also, recruiters need to include “how to apply” information.
The job board objective: The objective is to aid Indigenous Australians in their hunt for work.
Recruiter observations: To post an advert, you can click on “submit a job” at the bottom of the page. From there, you fill out a few forms providing more information about the job offer and then, the pricing appears on the screen (there is only one price actually).
Jobseeker observations: You don’t really need an account because most of the job offers redirect you to the company website.
The job offers: The oldest job offers are years old!! There are 2 149 job opportunities according to the website.
Special features: the blog (if we can really call it that); the career advice.
Verdict: The job board has very little to offer its users, since there is no blog or particularly original content. It’s unfortunate that the job offers haven’t been updated properly, but it is a clear website for anyone who has the time to look through job offers on several different job boards.
