Customised Programs

Building on our extensive working relationships with federal and state governments, and the community sector, we custom build training and recruitment programs to respond to your workforce needs.

There are many opportunities to access a future workforce purpose built to meet your business needs. Migrants, refugees, women and youth are an untapped resource that we can help you access. Our connections to culturally and linguistically diverse communities is our leading edge.

By providing a customised and tailored service we can help you achieve your company goals to boost productivity, enhance corporate social responsibility and meet workforce diversity targets.

Our approach ensures that we:

create strategic alliances
provide business with a safety net
add demonstrated value
navigate government systems to increase access to subsidies and funding
reduce red tape in government relations

Specialist diversity groups we work with:

  • Refugees and migrants
  • Vulnerable youth
  • Women returning to work
  • Long term unemployed

Finding the right people for your workforce is an ongoing challenge for many employers. Significant investment of time and money to find suitable staff often has varying results and can leave employers feeling discouraged and frustrated. Hiring for attitude is a corner stone of our approach.


We source, select and train motivated people to meet the specific requirements of the business and job roles. With a strong focus on diversity and inclusion including refugees and migrants, young people, women and mature aged workers, Community Corporate, a specialist diversity and inclusion firm, builds on our extensive working relationships with federal and state governments, and the community sector to custom build training and recruitment programs to respond to employers staffing needs. Our customised pre-employment programs are subsidised and offer employers a safety net and opportunity to trial potential employees with no direct liability or obligation.

Our commitment is to represent you, the employer, and ensure your needs are at the forefront of our decision making and advice. Our company strives to provide you with capable, motivated and committed people for your business – people that you want to employ and are confident can do the job. This is how we measure our success.

The 6 key steps of our employer-led approach:
  1. Workforce planning with employer directed program design
  2. Sourcing and screening suitable candidates
  3. Training and assessing candidates
  4. Coordinating on-the-job work placements and supported trials
  5. Recommending work ready candidates for employer selection
  6. Provide ongoing support to employers for up to six months post job placement

We manage stakeholders, and coordinate access to government training funds, wage subsides and other resources across all sectors through our public private and community partnership model.

“I have participated in this partnership program with Woolworths and Community Corporate from the beginning and it continues to provide me with hardworking, reliable and loyal team members. It is really important for us as store managers to get behind the program and provide a vital employment pathway for refugees who otherwise wouldn’t be working. They truly are an asset and welcome addition to the Metro team.”

Skilled Recruitment with The PIPEline Project

Our Professional Inclusion Pathways to Employment (PIPEline) initiative recognises the employment barriers faced by migrants and refugees who bring overseas qualifications, skills and experience but are often overlooked in traditional recruitment due to lack of local experience and references.

Our approach seeks to work with inclusive employers to develop a customised recruitment pathway that supports the assessment of our candidates to meet their business requirements. Community Corporate:

  • Sources candidates based on employer specifications
  • Undertakes compliance due diligence and job matching
  • Designs and delivers customised pre-employment coaching
  • Facilitates competency-based assessments
  • Supports retention through off-the-job coaching for a 12-month period to support retention.

We have supported highly skilled refugees and migrants with finance, IT, engineering, management, and HR backgrounds into skilled roles for our employer partners. Our candidates are passionate about their profession and determined to build local knowledge and expertise with the right employer.

This employer-led recruitment partnership is a win-win that allows an underrepresented cohort of talent the opportunity to transfer their qualifications, skills and experience into today’s workforce and contribute to the demand of Australia’s economy. As our employer partner, you will be opening the doors to opportunity for these diversity groups and reap the rewards of hiring differently with meaning. You have nothing to lose from our shared-risk-shared reward model of payment by results!
