About Us

IDEAL Placements is a Not for Profit Community organisation that has been helping people achieve their employment goals for over 20 years.

Established in 1996 to provide participants with choice of service delivery providers, IDEAL Placements has grown into a diverse and dynamic company that provides a wide range of services to people living in the Mackay, Whitsundays and surrounding areas.

Focusing on meeting individual needs while still providing choice and control when considering employment options; IDEAL Placements now delivers multiple programs across five office sites as well as flexible delivery options in outreach services to the more remote areas.

IDEAL Placements recognises that everyone has a right to be employed and works quickly to meet local employer needs in the changing market.  We realise no matter how hard we work, we will not be effective if participants don’t choose us to provide the services they need. IDEAL prides itself in meeting participant and employer needs.  The last twelve months has again demonstrated that we can deliver what the region wants with the additional Transition to Work, NDIS and multiple Skilling Queenslanders for Work programs added to our already successful employment support programs.
