Assett is committed to creating and extending opportunities for social housing tenants and Indigenous Australians

Assett has proven success in the implementation of Aboriginal Participation and Tenant Employment Plans. We are proud of our achievements so far which include some of the following results:

  • In 2015 Assett’s partnership with Yarn’n Indigenous Employment Agency resulted in full time job placements resulting in 18% of our current staff being of indigenous backgrounds.
  • We have also filled 2 full-time positions - a trade apprentice and an administration trainee - with indigenous backgrounds.
  • Since 2015 Assett has partnered with several of our Housing provider clients resulting in full-time job placements equating to 10% of our current employees being social/affordable housing tenants.
  • Assett, in partnership with St George Community Housing (SGCH), has provided 6 Strive scholarships in the years 2015/16 and 2016/17 and is committed to providing another 3 in the year 2017/18.
