Our Impact

Hamlet aims to create a positive impact on the community. Not only do we aim to change the lives of the participants we work with, we also create connections with other organisations that make contributions to our community such as Hobart City Mission’s Safe Night Space program and Dress for Success.

As at June 2023 Hamlet has worked with 723 participants and delivered 38,732 hours of training through our hospitality programs.

We aim to tackle the barriers which prevent people from participating. We do this using our IMPACT model.

Improving work readiness

Applying for a job can be daunting, remember doing that for the first time?

Hamlet delivers a range of additional training opportunities, so our participants are confident when applying for jobs including resume writing, job interview skills and work presentation.

Making friends and building networks

Feeling connected and supported on their journey allows our participants to thrive.

Hamlet helps our participants reconnect with their community, the beauty of delivering our training in a working café is that it allows our participants to do this in a safe space.

Pipelines to employment

Sometimes you need some help to get your foot in the door.

Hamlet is dedicated to building relationships with potential employers for our training graduates.

Addressing disadvantage

Did you know that Tasmania has the lowest rates of literacy in the country?

Hamlet provides intensive wrap around support to our participants to bolster their chances of securing employment outcomes and improving their everyday life.

Connection to support

Can you imagine applying for a job if you didn’t have a bed for the night?

Hamlet connects participants to community service organisation who are best placed to assist them in a range of areas.

Training valued by industry

Taking the guess work out of hiring someone new.

Hamlet works with the Tourism and Hospitality industry to ensure our participants have the skills needed to walk into a job and add value.

Creating Opportunities within the Industry

Hamlet works closely with industry and during early 2023 we worked with the team at MONA to develop 4 front of house opportunities for Hamlet graduates.

With guidance from the Hamlet team, MONA staff have put a lot of thought and care into identifying roles across their many venues which would be suitable for Hamlet Graduates.

We look forward to working with more businesses in the future to create space for graduates in the workforce.
