The team at MAX Employment Craigieburn and Glenroy have brightened the lives of young and old this Christmas, after placing over 300 job seekers into work and donating $1,500 to local mental health organisation Headspace.

For every job seeker placed before Christmas Eve, Western Melbourne MAX sites have pledged to donate $5 to Headspace as part of their annual Christmas jobs drive.

To celebrate their recent success, the Craigieburn and Glenroy teams gathered for a Christmas breakfast with surrounding community organisations, and Craigieburn Business Manager Trish Gentile said the community spirit has been inspiring.

“We’ve had some of our great community organisations join us for the event. They’ve all made a positive difference in our clients’ lives and we want to continue working closely with these organisations to assist our job seekers. 



“Our charity organisation is Headspace, and they provide some great early intervention and mental health services people under 25, focusing on mental health, physical health, work and study.”

To date, the Western Melbourne MAX sites have raised $1,595 to assist the charity, and Trish said the donation will go a long way to helping youth struggling with mental health issues.

“Christmas can be a really hard time for a lot of people, particularly for young people who might have just finished study or are looking for career change and are mentally and physically exhausted.



“We’re thankful to those employers who have helped us place people into work this Christmas. It’s helped us raise a lot of money for Headspace and we’re happy we can change so many young lives,” Trish said.
