Wade Noonan - Minister for Industry and Employment

The Victorian Government, as part of our Jobs Victoria Employment Network, will invest $39 million with 38 employment providers to provide more than 4,000 jobs to disadvantaged job seekers.

Enzo Bruscella - Chief Executive, Southern Cross Recycling

Our core business is the recycling of clothing and household goods. 

[Vision:  Recycling bin - Daniel emptying bin to van]

We partner with social enterprises, White Lion and others, to provide skills to those social enterprises and the training.  White Lion is a charity that helps out youths that have been into trouble to get into work.

Daniel - Van Driver

My job is to service bins with the van, to empty the clothing into the van.

[Vision:  Daniel closing charity bin]

I felt really good because someone gave me an opportunity to start work, and it's helped me a lot.

[Daniel speaking]

I feel better about myself and I can support my family now.

Daniel came to us, we provided some counselling for him and some coaching, so he's going along really nicely, and we'll continue to coach him and provide him that benefit.

[Daniel speaking]

I enjoy helping people.  I enjoy working outside.

[Daniel driving van]

I would say to other people that are looking for jobs just to keep trying and don't give up.

Dean - White Lion Programs Participant

So White Lion is a not-for-profit charity, but they reach out to young people at risk.

I guess my message for any young people out there that need help is just you need to ask, make that choice to change.

[Wade Noonan speaking and talking with Daniel]

The job is but one part of this equation.  It's really the dignity that's returned to people's lives.

[Vision:  Enzo Bruscella speaking with Daniel - Wade Noonan speaking]

And we're very excited to be helping disadvantaged people be matched with employers through these employment providers, and getting disadvantage Victorians into work.
