first choice in the community

first choice plays a crucial role in communities across the region. We connect people with employment opportunities, actively promoting our region and our people. We are proud of our achievements in supporting individuals in their efforts to regain status and purpose through rewarding and fulfilling employment opportunities and experience. Since 1993, we have placed tens of thousands of local people into a varied and challenging range of roles and believe passionately that the impact of our work is positive and uplifting not just for the successful candidate, but also for their family and communities in which they live.

For many, with our support and the continued commitment of our clients, securing a position, working regularly within a respected employer and gaining responsibility and pride in performance are the key steps towards a real and positive step change in life.
