Who We Are

Goal Indigenous Services is an Indigenous owned Enterprise that provides a range of human resource, supply chain and service solutions to our customers while creating sustainable employment opportunities and support networks for Indigenous Australians. 

With the capacity, reach and experience to service a range of industries at a high level, we work to facilitate the creation of solutions that meet the needs of the industry client in the most effective and efficient ways, with the potential to deliver opportunities for Indigenous candidates.

As an Indigenous Enterprise, majority owned by Director Xavier Clarke, Goal IS helps employers and projects to reach their targets for workforce diversity and to comply with government and contractor mandates.  

Vision and Mission

Our vision is to create employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We strive to provide Indigenous people secure, long-term economic independence within their communities.

We aim to facilitate the connections between industry needs, capacity building and the creation of innovative and flexible solutions for our clients.

Goal Indigenous Services achieves our vision by:

  • Being an Indigenous Owned Enterprise who prioritises the long term employment and ongoing development of Indigenous people in all of its delivered solutions.
  • Connecting with industry clients who have unmet needs, market gaps or opportunities for improvement
  • Making it easy and cost-effective for businesses to use our services, therefore prioritising Indigenous employment
  • Connecting in meaningful and effective ways with Indigenous people who are looking for work opportunities
  • Provide the leadership and support that not only gets Indigenous people into work, but mentors and provides services to help them stay there and progress their careers

About Xavier Clarke

Goal Indigenous Services is an initiative of Managing Director, Xavier Clarke. Xavier is a well-respected Larrakia and Amrreamo/Marritjavin (Daly River region) man who grew up in Darwin.  

A former AFL player, Xavier spent 10 years at both St Kilda and Brisbane Lions, playing 106 senior games before retiring in 2011 due to injury. Career highlights include being a first round pick in the 2001 AFL Draft, a 2002 AFL Rising Star Nominee and being selected twice for the AFL Indigenous All Stars.

Since his playing retirement, Xavier has worked with the AFL and the AFL Players Association (AFLPA) in Indigenous engagement, and in 2013 he was appointed Head Coach at NT Thunder, where in his first year took the club to a preliminary final and was awarded the NEAFL Coach of the Year. In 2014 he coached NT Thunder to their second NEAFL premiership (winning by 1 point), and was named NT Sports Awards Coach of the Year.

Xavier is still the head coach of the Thunder, and balances this work with the development and growth of Goal Indigenous Services.  He also sits on the AFL Indigenous Advisory Council, the AFL Women’s Advisory Group, and is an Ambassador for White Ribbon.

Xavier’s passion is coaching, and through this helping people achieve their goals on and off the sporting fields.  His skillsets, networks and position of leadership and respect within Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities alike drive the ethos behind Goal to build relationships, create opportunities and generate positive outcomes for all.
