Greencap is pleased to be working with the Jawun Secondment program to support indigenous communities across Australia.

The Jawun Secondment program is a not-for-profit organisation which brokers staff secondments from government and corporate Australia to a range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations.

Greencap has offered to supply staff member Christopher Wright as a secondee to work with the 2014 Jarwun program, and Chris will spend six weeks in the East Kimberley region.

Wesfarmers has been working with Jawun since 2010, addressing a commitment under the Wesfarmers Reconciliation Action Plan: to support Aboriginal organisations through the provision of skilled secondees.

Secondees are assigned to particular projects depending on the needs of individual organisations. Previous secondees have worked on projects such as; developing a human resources policies and procedures manual, developing a communications strategy for an organisation or program, researching and applying for funding opportunities, and strategic and business planning.

Through these secondments, Jawun and corporate Australia support Indigenous leadership to deliver their own strategies and vision and to build the capabilities of Indigenous people and organisations.
