On the recent episode (#110) of Black Magic Woman, Mundanara Bayles hosted Priscilla Mason, a proud Worimi woman and one of the directors of Indigeco. Priscilla talked about her passion for promoting employment opportunities for Indigenous individuals and communities.
Started in 2017 with funding provided by IBA via a start-up loan package, Indigeco is a Supply Nation certified business that specialises in recruitment across both regional and metropolitan areas.
“Money was tight, but IBA took a chance on me. I can’t thank them enough,” says Priscilla.
With a start from humble upbringings and experience in the construction industry, Priscilla and her husband, Todd, saw the opportunity for growth in Aboriginal employment. In the beginning they started off on small construction sites, with only two labours. Now they provide several services ranging from employment, consulting on major construction projects and more.
The business now also has a training side of things with MobReady, which has VET accreditation to skill up Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth to find career pathways in the labour hire space.
Indigeco continues their relationship with IBA as they grow. They use our invoice financing, a service that helps our customers whose cash flow can’t keep up with their growth.
“I still use them (IBA) today. They are fantastic,” says Priscilla.
IBA is proud to sponsor a series of strong women in business for this year’s Black Magic Woman pod- and vod-casts. If you would like more info on all the Black Magic Woman yarns, visit the website, blackmagicwoman.com.au/iba-partnership-series/.
