Creating Career Pathways at KARI’s Aboriginal Employment Expo

Taylor and Raston Group meet with young jobseekers at KARI’s inaugural Aboriginal Employment Expo, held at the Liverpool Catholic Club.

Team Taylor and Raston Group joined forces at KARI’s Aboriginal Employment Expo, which saw more than 40 employers across construction, design, retail, health and sales connect with high school students, school leavers, young parents, first time workers and young members of the community seeking immediate employment. 

Karen Ryan,People Relations Manager at Taylor, and Dan Copping, Talent Manager at Taylor, were joined by Bruno Rao and Luke Stone, Directors at Raston Group, engaging with young people aged between 17 and 25 to discuss Apprenticeship and employment opportunities, that may come to fruition through our trusted, long-term partnership.

As a business built on fostering meaningful relationships, Taylor is committed to partnering with organisations like KARI and Raston Group to help to increase cultural awareness, connection and opportunity across our own organisation. Connection to place and connection to people are fundamental drivers for our business – we recognise the unique role we play in providing access to employment, education and training, and cultural and community connection through our business activities in construction and property. 

Earlier this year, KARI was officially announced as Taylor’s Reconciliation Action Plan Partner with the launch of the Annual $15,000 KARI/Taylor #WomenBreakingGround Scholarship. This initiative supports high achieving young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and women to take up tertiary studies in construction. We look forward to building on this partnership over coming years – you can learn more about the scholarship here. 

We would like to thank KARI, Raston Group and all those who came by our stall to learn about fulfilling employment opportunities in construction.
