Recycling Partnership is a Win Win for All
A recent partnership between IMPACT’s Recycling and Collections Centre and Southern Cross Recycling (SCR) is a win win for our people, our 
business and the environment. Two collection bins placed at Stockland’s Sugarland Shoppingtown bus stop (Commonwealth Bank end) are now ready for use by the public. This adds one more location to SCR’s 1500 sites around Australia where people can donate clothing, toys, books and mobile phones. All donated items are collected, sorted and dispersed in an attempt to divert millions of kilos of reusable and recyclable goods from landfill.

Building Business Relationships One Job at a Time 
Instant Access are a national company employing local people and for that we support them. IMPACT’s employment services team Grant Rogers 
and Matt Tribodo recently stopped by to say thanks and present a $100 gift voucher to the manager Dean Turner.
“Over the last 12 months Dean has employed five staff, this is a fantastic outcome for everyone and as a gesture of good will we like to give back to local businesses,” Grant said. “We’re always looking to work closely and build business relationships. This has developed into a long-term partnership with staff being employed for various jobs, including truck drivers, scaffolding, and general labourers.”
Dean appreciates the support he receives during any recruitment process, “I’m really happy with the service IMPACT offers, the staff I have on board are great and the process was made easy. It has been straightforward and no hidden agenda. Time is precious and the team from IMPACT were very conscious of that, it was greatly appreciated.”

Real Estate Career Headstart
To give our jobseekers a headstart for a career in real estate we invited LJ Hooker's Jonathon Olsen to discuss the industry. 
Discussions included the differing job roles in real estate such as  Property Manager,
Salesperson, Administration/Reception, Business Development & Personal Assistant; what training or qualifications are needed to start in the industry, what to expect on a day-to-day basis and the expectations of an employer.
"Everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed the session and learnt plenty about the industry," said Employment Advisor Matt Tribodo. "A big thank you to Jonathon for donating his time as guest speaker. Thank you for inspiring us all."


Social Inclusion Week was a Toe Tapping Success
Despite heavy rainfall on Saturday evening the Aussie Bush Dance still forged ahead to the delight of all those who attended. More than 100 people heel and toed
and hokey pokeyed to the great sounds of local bush band Home Brewed. Entertainment also included whip cracking demonstrations, dancing highlights by the Goody2Shoes Cloggers and bush poetry by Jayson Russell. The activities room had thong throwing, thong bongo, star weaving and a horseshoe toss. There were fantastic prizes thanks to the Moncrieff Theatre, Ymazing and Ken’s Kepnock Butchery for best dressed, most enthusiastic and dancing champions. The Aussie Bush Dance is held by the Bundaberg Region Inclusive Communities Committee to celebrate Social Inclusion Week and to all enjoy our great community together.
