Renewing our commitment to the community with fresh, new look 

As 40 years in operation approaches, CVGT Australia is evolving with a new name and a fresh new look.  

From Friday 1 July, the organisation will be known as CVGT Employment, with a new trading name but the same dedication to serving communities.  

“The new name is designed to better reflect our purpose of finding people meaningful employment, while also making it easier for the community to recognise what we do,” chair Liz Corbett said.  

“The logo was also created to demonstrate our commitment to creating connections between participants and employers, between our business and the community.”  

Those ideals and values will remain at the heart of the organisation, chief executive officer Jason Russell said, which remains a not-for-profit, for purpose charity.  

“It’s an exciting time for the organisation as we approach our 40th anniversary,” Mr Russell said.  

“We think this new look reflects our history while also giving us a clearer identity.” 

Time of celebration and change

CVGT Employment will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2023. The organisation was formed to help young unemployed people in Bendigo, and now serves communities across three states from more than 120 sites.  

While also supporting young people into study or work, CVGT Employment works with people and businesses from a wide range of backgrounds.  

There is support available for traineeships and apprenticeships, disability employment and for parents wanting to return to the workforce.  

From July, CVGT Employment will also be a provider for the federal government’s new Workforce Australia program in Bendigo, and across the Wimmera Mallee, Goulburn Murray and North West Tasmania regions.  

“This range of employment programs and our experience and local knowledge mean people can be confident CVGT Employment will provide a quality service,” Mr Russell said.  

“For employers, they can know CVGT Employment has access to a wide range of local talent, while also providing follow-up support to ensure new staff are successful.”
