Working together is a dedicated services with a focus to provide information, support and advice to business owners and operators in the Goldfields, Mid West, Great Southern, West Kimberley and South West regions to attract, recruit and retain young Aboriginal Employees. Working in collaboration with their local Aboriginal Workforce Development Centre, Working Together aims to expand work opportunities for young local Aboriginal people by talking with and educating local businesses. It is about delivering local jobs for local people.
