As a people-focused company, Austcorp proudly extends our responsibility to individuals outside of the workplace and into the community and the natural environment – both locally and abroad.
To complement our Environmental Policy, our Not for Profit division actively works with charities and NFPs throughout the country and assists them in procuring the right people to fulfil charitable and community-centric endeavours.
We know that the students of today are the professionals of tomorrow. This belief inspired us to partner with United Way Australia as one of the many leadership workshops we offer throughout the year. This Leadership Workshop engaged a selected group of Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 students from South Sydney High School. During the workshop, students learned skills in effective communication, team work, setting and achieving goals, delegation and time management. We are delighted we were able to give the kids a fun day, some career inspiration and positive messaging on Leadership.
Darkness into Light is a charity that engages the community on the issue of suicide awareness. Austcorp was proud to join the 1500 people who came together at 4.30 am to watch the sunrise over Bondi Beach as an act of solidarity and support for this wonderful cause.
We also, through our corporate partnership with good company regularly engage in volunteer days. Recently we helped the NSW food bank in their packaging facility, we helped with various maintenance tasks at the NSW guide dog centre as well as hosting a fund raising event which enabled us to donate 600 teddy bears to the Cambodian Children’s Fund.
This year nearly 600 teddy bears from AustCorp Executive Recruitment arrived at the Cambodia Children Fund with an important job to do. While some of the bears have been shared with their day-care students (in the photos), the rest will play a greater role. The CCF Child Protection Unit investigates cases of abuse against children. Every child victim their CPU meets is given a teddy bear, to help not only the recovery process but to build trust with their officers.
