Second Chance Employment Program
Second Chance works with its network of partners to provide tailored services that support and connect long-term job seekers with employers.
We help job seekers get job-ready through mentoring, training and development and work closely with local employers to identify exactly the types of skills and experience that they are looking for. Through this process, businesses gain access to a source of quality candidates and job seekers find meaningful, ongoing employment.
This collaborative approach delivers real and tangible benefits for individuals, our communities and our economy.

I am looking for work
Our Second Chance program has been specially designed to offer an alternative employment activity for people before the court. Our staff work closely with legal representatives, employers and community support services to identify job opportunities and prepare participants for those roles.
We like to make things as easy as possible for you, through understanding, guidance and support. From your first appointment, you will be engaged in activities supported by our trained and experienced staff to make you work-ready, and to help you into work.
Contact us to find out if you are eligible to participate in the Second Chance program.
