Our Story

WHO WE ARE

GOAL INDIGENOUS SERVICES (GOAL) IS A MAJORITY OWNED INDIGENOUS EMPLOYMENT SERVICE PROVIDER HELPING FIRST PEOPLES’ SECURE, LONG-TERM ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE WITHIN THEIR COMMUNITIES.

GOAL is a joint venture between former AFL footballer Xavier Clarke and CoreStaff, a subsidiary of CGH Group.

Established in 2016 we have grown from one start-up branch in the Northern Territory to representation in nearly every state of Australia.

Our expansion into the Victorian Market has resulted in the establishment of our biggest branch and our VTEC partnership.

VISION AND MISSION

GOAL IS recognises that the rate of Indigenous unemployment is unacceptable and is a major contributor to the other areas of social disadvantage and dysfunction within Indigenous communities.

A co-ordinated approach is needed to facilitate quality training and work ready candidates for sustainable employment.

We offer mentoring and on-going support for Indigenous job seekers to help gain employment and continue to offer support to both the Employer and Employee by coordinating pathway plans to further upskill the employee.

ABOUT CGH

CGH Group began in 2008 as CoreStaff Group Holdings, since then it has
grown rapidly from one branch in Darwin to 20+ branches nationally
represented by four brands; CoreStaff, Beilby Downing Teal (BDT), OPRA

The CGH Group is a leader in the Australian recruitment industry providing a range of labour, recruitment, human resources and related consulting services.

The CGH Group provides a strong foundation of expertise, experience and industry networks for Goal IS to leverage upon. 

Before signing up to Goal VTEC, I had been job searching for three months. Within two months of registering with Goal VTEC, I successfully gained a cleaning role with a major project in the civil construction space. That opportunity led to being offered a full time Certificate III Civil Construction Apprenticeship which I’m excited about.
