Career Guidance & Support
If you’re aged between 45 – 70, employed or recently unemployed (less than 9 months) and not receiving Australian Government employment assistance, we can help.
BUSY At Work started way back in 1977, with the simple aim to deliver training and employment programs to homeless youth on the Gold Coast.
BUSY stands for Backing Unemployed Southport Youth, and was founded by our President Martin Punch, who set out to deliver this aim by obtaining funding from the Australian Government to run a community youth support program.
A little over twenty years later in 1998, BUSY successfully tendered for the Australian Government’s Apprenticeship Support Services and from then on became known as BUSY At Work. BUSY At Work has remained a not-for-profit association with the same values that have guided our decisions and our behaviour for 40 years.
Over this time, we have provided Apprenticeship Support Services to more than 40,000 businesses across Queensland, and are the longest serving provider of Apprenticeship Support Services in the state.
In 2017, BUSY At Work merged with ON-Q Disability Services (now known as BUSY Ability). BUSY Ability have been supporting people with a disability for over 30 years. Their experience and knowledge within the disability employment sector is an invaluable asset, and together we are able to place more people into jobs across a larger footprint.
The BUSY Group currently employs 263 people across 45 offices, and are consistently looking at ways to reinvest in initiatives to support communities with skills training and employment opportunities.
