TRACKS Indigenous Services is an Australian Indigenous-owned and operated business providing services to companies and projects in areas of workforce, procurement, consulting and contracting.

Based in Parap in the Northern Territory and operating nationally, TRACKS offers a 360-degree service to businesses where projects and/or operations must have a successful collaboration with the Indigenous communities, people and environments.

Beginnings

TRACKS, which is an acronym for Training and Recruiting: giving Aboriginal Careers a Kick Start, originated as an Indigenous Employment Program under the Celotti Workforce brand; providing quality employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians through targeted sourcing and training activities.

Demand for TRACKS’ services grew rapidly in the Northern Territory and beyond, and we quickly recognised that our clients would benefit greatly from a broader service offering. So, with a strong focus on meeting industry demand, TRACKS separated from the Celotti Workforce brand and in November 2018, TRACKS Indigenous Service Pty Ltd was launched. TRACKS now very proudly offers a full 360-degree service meeting our clients’ needs in areas of workforce, procurement, contracting and general consulting.

Our Company Vision

We see an Australia where there is NO GAP. Where diversity is valued. Where there is equal opportunity for every Australian.

Our Mission Statement

Through provision of our workforce, procurement, consulting and contracting services, we are encouraging and enabling positive working partnerships between Indigenous Australian individuals and enterprises, and Australian industry. We are creating new opportunities for Indigenous people to participate in the Australian workforce, leading to the advancement of our Indigenous population overall and working towards closing the gap.

Nicole Thompson

Director

A proud Mak Mak Marranunggu woman from the Northern Territory, Nicole has strong knowledge and a deep understanding of what it is to be a part of the Indigenous workforce. This allows her to offer an insight which can only be advantageous to our clients.

Nicole has the ability to comfortably liaise with all levels of Industry and corporate structure. She has owned and operated her own NT-based business successfully for many years and has been a Director on the board of a number of Indigenous owned and operated businesses including four years with a successful Aboriginal Cattle Station.

Her experience working with various Darwin based companies in the civil and construction industry is definitely an asset to TRACKS and our clients, particularly her significant experience as Operations Manager for a Territory-based concrete batching plant.

Mentoring Indigenous youths has also formed a large part of Nicole’s working history, which puts her in good stead for recognising the best way to approach certain workplace situations as they arise and knowing how to confidently deliver strategies, advice and solutions for the benefit of all stakeholders.

The networks and business connections that Nicole has worked hard to build up over the past 15 years stand her in good stead for the work she does at TRACKS, covering all aspects of clients management from initial enquiry through to the successful completion of projects.

Nicole understands that communication is key to providing a quality client service. She has a ‘hands on’ approach which, combined with her understanding of businesses in the industry, government departments, and how to marry all of these together, enables her to achieve positive results that are beneficial for all.

Director

Suzie commenced her human resources career in organisational psychology and recruitment with a selection of national and international companies including Hudson Global Resources, National Australia Bank and BHP Billiton; building an impressive set of skills in employment and people management along the way. Moving interstate years later, Suzie spent some time with a smaller HR Consultancy, developing and heading up the Human Resources department for the South Australian Native Title Service in Adelaide.

To better understand the businesses she supports through her HR work, Suzie took the opportunity to manage a start-up construction services company in Adelaide, and, finding she loved and thrived in the world of business, she then went on to start her own recruitment company - Celotti Workforce, which she still manages to this day, and which now services clients across the country from it’s head office in Darwin. TRACKS originally began as an Indigenous Employment Program developed by Suzie under the Celotti brand, before splitting off to become a completely separate entity in November 2018.

Suzie’s primary role at TRACKS Indigenous Services is to drive the growth and strategic direction of the business. She is a big-picture thinker who has a great ability to see opportunity and develop it into tangible outcomes. Her natural ability to network and bring people toegther for common cause further strenthens her capablity in this space, and makes Suzie a strong contibutor to TRACKS and a great support for our clients.
