“Delaware North’s experience of partnering with SisterWorks and creating employment opportunities across the company’s Victorian sites for many inspiring women has been an incredibly rewarding journey.

We look forward to continued success and the provision of career development for our sisters at Delaware North.”

Supporting our Programs
The Delaware North team has also engaged with SisterWorks hospitality program, with representatives attending classes to introduce their company and talk about the jobs they have available. They have also organised workplace tours for the Sisters where they can observe how their company works.This gave the Sisters opportunities to engage with a potential employer where they could ask questions about their jobs, recruitment processes and the company culture.
