  • Ashburton Aboriginal Corporation

    Ashburton Aboriginal Corporation's (AAC) mission is to establish and maintain an environment that benefits Aboriginal people through the creation of culturally appropriate employment, enterprise opportunities and the provision of education and training services throughout the Pilbara. AAC works with individuals, communities and other organisations to provide a range of services, enterprises and programs that facilitate increased participation in employment and economic opportunities. As the Community Development Program provider for the two regions of Hedland and the Western Desert, a large portion of AAC's workforce is focused on achieving this goal. Where real jobs are available, the staff work closely with employers to identify local jobs and jobseekers to make sure their skills currently meet the needs of employers and follow up with both groups once a jobseeker is employed. AAC staff provide guidance and preparation over inductions and ongoing maintenance of the jobseeker in the work force.
