The Gforce Group celebrate 36 years delivering quality and personalised employment services in Geelong.
Gforce was established in 1983 as a community-based Group Training Organisation to provide apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities to the Geelong region.
Today, Gforce, incorporating People@Work and EGF Solutions has expanded its professional services to cater for all employment and recruitment needs, and is one of Victoria’s largest employers. With 11 offices throughout Victoria, their head office is located in Central Geelong.
Gforce CEO Rob Birch acknowledges their longevity to the strong relationships and collaborations built over their 36 years. ‘We continue to work with many reputable organisations and have collaborated on projects that not only evolve business and our region but also, importantly help people, many facing barriers, pathways to securing sustainable and meaningful employment’, Mr Birch said. ‘Employment often has a broad, positive impact outside of an individual that extends to their families and thus the wider community’.
Gforce is committed to giving back to the Geelong community and supports many social projects with organisations such as Give Where You Live, Barwon Health Foundation, Lazarus House as well as sponsoring youth in local sport. Gforce supports regional business growth and is a signatory of the GROW compact.
