BUSY Ability is contracted by the Australian Government’s Workforce Australia to provide specialist employment services to people who have a lived experience of the justice system.

Our goal is to ensure jobseekers successfully reset their lives back into the community, their family and the workplace. BUSY Ability provides individualised support for people who need extra assistance to re-enter the workforce by way of training, mentoring and support plus open employment opportunities from a range of industries and locations.

We work with leading specialists, community organisation, CREST providers, community corrections, and Queensland Correctional Services to help people transition from prison into sustainable employment and training.

As a part of The BUSY Group, we can provide jobseekers with a range of services that include health (psychological and occupational therapy), apprenticeships and traineeships, education and training, and most importantly a one-on-one, personalised approach to support an individual’s goals.


Our no-cost pre-employment workshops are designed to provide support, information, new ideas and resources to help you get into the workforce.

Topics covered include but not limited to:

  • networking,
  • interviewing,
  • self-awareness,
  • self-care and
  • effective communication.
