Indigenous Job Connections (IJC) actively supports Indigenous individuals and groups from the Far North Queensland and Cape York to pursue employment, training and business opportunities which will provide long term economic benefit and cultural enrichment.

Originally a Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) provider, over the past four years Indigenous Job Connections has diversified into new programs and commercial activities.

While CDEP remains a core activity, IJC no longer relies solely on government grants. It has a dedicated staff and bright future; winning and creating business as an independent organisation through acting on it’s own initiatives and competitive tendering.

IJC leads by example in supporting its stakeholders to become independent, capable, productive people, families and organisations.

Through the development of a strategic plan and the diversification of interests, IJC now encompasses a range of training, employment and business interests:
