Specialist services from Career Centres

Some people within our community may require specialist services to assist them in making career choices and overcoming barriers to employment, education and training. Specialist Career Centre services can help.

Ex-offenders

When you're released from prison, finding a steady job or getting your career back on track can make a big difference in getting your life moving in a positive direction. We offer a one-day career development course while you're in prison which covers aspects such as:

    • emplyability skills;
    • interview techniques;
    • self-image;
    • coping with unemployment;
    • disclosing convictions; and
    • how to access employment services within the community.

We also offer services that provide practical support to ex-offenders throughout their job search journey. We can help with:

    • advice on choosing a career path
    • information on training or education options;
    • a resource room with a computer, printer and internet that you can use; and
    • writing your resume and job application and preparing for job interviews

There is also a specialist program for Aboriginal ex-offenders to support effective transition from prison to reconnection with their community and culture.

Services are available from 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday at 27 Moore St, East Perth or phone (08) 6263 8622.
