Our dedicated staff and project contractors, in partnership with external consultants, develop and deliver successful leadership programs for regional community leaders both within Western Australia and interstate.

We continue to be leaders in our own projects
We appreciate the ongoing development of leadership skills as necessary to our own constant growth and improvement.

Leadership Skills Development
Our Supporting Women in Leadership – One Day workshops have been attended by women across the Great Southern and South West of Western Australia. These workshops have been tailored to suit people living in regional and rural Australia. Participants learn about their unique style of leadership, communication styles and strategies for affirmative engagement, and increase their confidence and capability to lead in their own communities.

Our Take the Next Step – ongoing mentoring service provides individual mentoring for current and emerging leaders, developed to suit their individual needs in their leadership journey or project or campaign development.
We also provide a range of standalone development workshops that can be arranged and delivered in blocks according to your organisation or community needs. For a list of some of the possibilities READ HERE.

We are animals, we eat, we love, we fight, we poo, we feel. We dress it up to appear that we are above nature and our natures. A butterfly is more beautiful, it does not destruct as it goes. My eye is drawn to a piece of plastic rubbish cast aside at the edge of camp...

Visitors to Coogee Beach will notice Ecojobs staff working in the dunes – not trampling, but using a technique called “brushing”.
This rehabilitation method involves using tree and shrub branches to stabilise dunes. Native branches create a microclimate that protects and shades sand, increases water infiltration, reduces erosion and wind speed, deters traffic, and traps sand. The essential conditions for revegetation.
Ecojobs team members Perry, Mitch and Ben have been working with the City of Cockburn on this coastline protection initiative.
Wilson Wetlands Action Group (WWAG) has utilised the services offered by Green Skills Ecojobs Environmental Personnel for a number of years on our varied projects within Canning River Regional Park.
The office staff are helpful and efficient in dealing with bookings and staffing requests when we contact them. Field staff are punctual and arrive ready to start the tasks of the day. They are professional and understand the complexities of working within fragile conservation areas. With background and interest in the work staff are often able to offer constructive input which contributes to the successful outcome of the project.

Emerging Community Leadership Program’ for the Department of Regional Development,
Green Skills have brought significant experience in facilitating community engagement and supporting our leadership for sustainability initiatives. With their extensive network of regional contacts across southern WA, they helped us to recruit program participants, and to co-facilitate the program’s adult-learning workshops. The program received positive feedback from program participants and its success was, in no small measure, due to the expertise and support that Louise and Dawn brought to this project.
Ecojobs Services have been excellent, with works attended to and completed on time, to a high standard and within the quoted budget. The personnel are reliable, professional and prompt when working for the City. We have no hesitation in recommending Ecojobs for similar scope of works and looks forward to continuing to work with Green Skills services into the future.
