Message from the General Manager

As we approach the end of the financial year reflecting on our organization’s performance during the past 12 months, I feel like it has been a very full and busy year in which we celebrated Q.I.T.E. moving into our new head office, starting to use an electronic new HR platform for staff and starting a new Disability Employment Services contract just to name a few items.

We have faced many changes and challenges head -on and we will continue to work hard and stay focused on our main goals.


Q.I.T.E. will continue to make a difference assisting our communities’ most disadvantaged people to engage fully in community life and find employment.

If you are an employer who needs staff please call one of our offices and we can assist with resumes and letting you know what incentives are available. We are currently working on our 120 jobs in 30 days competition and would love to hear from you.

I am sincerely thankful for the staff and Management team that we have for their commitment and ability to keep pushing to make a difference.

Jillian Trout
