Starting a business is not for the faint hearted and having an experienced mentor can make all the difference on the road to success.
NTEX are dedicated to making a practical difference in the communities we work in. That’s why we decided to support other small businesses though our pro-bono mentoring scheme.
Select First Nations businesses starting out in the construction industry can tap into our expert human resources for coaching in tendering, work health and safety, administration, and access to our extensive industry networks plus much more.
It’s really important to us that the small businesses we support develop skills to succeed and are empowered to determine their own futures.
We have an in-house business development expert (Eileen Breen) who has extensive experience in coaching and mentoring First Nations Australian entrepreneurs through her previous work in the not-for-profit space. Eileen and the NTEX team are committed to playing an active role to improve the situation of aspiring entrepreneurs and providing opportunities to First Nations Territorians.
NTEX has engaged with Grassroots Action Palmerston (GAP) Aboriginal Corporation to support the delivery of the Grassroots Youth Engagement pathway, offering a meaningful work program to allow disengaged indigenous youth the opportunity to build practical skills, knowledge, and confidence in a real-life employment setting.
Together we provide a holistic 10-week work program with one on one mentoring and support to select indigenous youth. Upon successful completion of the program, we provide direct pathways to employment through either our company or our extensive industry networks.
NTEX and GAP are committed to implementing pathways for disengaged and disadvantaged youth in the community to bring real generational change through employment and training opportunities.
