CVGT Employment delivers positive economic and social benefits

Delivering positive economic and social benefits to the community is at the heart of what CVGT Employment does. We have been growing for four decades and have a real commitment to supporting the towns and cities in which we operate.

Inclusion and diversity are integral to our culture and how we live our values. Reflecting the diversity of the people we support and our communities enables us to better understand and serve their needs.

We listen to our people and the experiences of those we support. We also partner with community organisations, businesses and academics to deliver positive economic and social benefits to the regions where we operate. We do this through investing in partnerships, projects and local sponsorships.


Working together is what makes the difference for our communities.


CVGT Employment is proud to our offer sponsorship and grant programs.

Our strategic plan

Employment builds capacity for social and economic inclusion. It can be transformational for individuals, business and their communities.

Our teams in New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria deliver services to thousands of individuals and businesses. We partner to deliver personalised programs and outcomes that suits an individual’s needs. We put programs into action, and our goal is to find employment solutions that work for each person and meet their needs, skills, experience and interests.

2020 was the starting point for our Strategic Plan 2020-25. It was developed in response to our changing operating environment.

At the time when communities were facing mounting unemployment, with economic and climatic uncertainty, a combination of a prolonged drought and catastrophic bushfires, followed by COVID–19, created challenging circumstances for all levels of government, industry sectors, employers and job seekers. In 2021, the uncertainty continued. The ongoing pandemic forced some businesses to close and unemployment to rise, which further impacted our communities.

Our strategic plan is giving us clear goals and priorities to ensure we adapt to deliver the best possible employment services to people. After its first year, the overall progression towards the achievement of our five-year strategic plan is 35 per cent.

We will continue to stay true on delivering our purpose, enabled by this strategy and priorities.

Our 2025 goals

  • To be a partner of choice  
  • To provide place-based, complete employment solutions 
  • To expand our reach and impact within the community 
  • To achieve increased employment numbers 
  • To have a diverse and engaged workforce 
  • To be digitally enabled 
  • To have a pathway towards carbon neutrality 

Partnerships with business and industry

CVGT Employment works closely with businesses and industry to build inclusive practices, improve equality and ensure every person has access to employment.

Our collaborations are many, and they are formal and informal – from meeting in a boardroom to having a chat at a sports event.

Yet, there is a shared vision for developing pathways to employment for people of all ages and abilities, from seeking positive outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in all communities, to ensuring young people have the support they need to make life-changing decisions.
