Who is White Box Enterprises?

White Box Enterprises are the team behind the operations and management of Witton Barracks. 

We are a team of bold entrepreneurs on a mission to create 5,000 jobs by 2030 for people who are often shut out from mainstream work. 

We work with social enterprises, government, investors and philanthropists to build, support and advocate for large-scale jobs-focused social enterprises, so that every individual can access meaningful and inclusive employment.

Why do we do this?

The statistics speak volumes. Only 6% of refugees have a job six months after they arrive in Australia. Almost 70% of ex-offenders in QLD are unemployed 6 months after release. And only 48% of working age people with disability are employed.

The fact is, many Australians face barriers to mainstream employment.

We want to build a world where anyone wants a job, can get one.

We believe that businesses for good are the way to do this.

Jobs-focused social enterprises are a proven model for success in creating jobs for these individuals. They provide unique wrap-around support they need to feel secure and valued in the workplace.

We are determined to deepen and grow this sector so that every person regardless of their background or situation, has the chance to work. 

What makes us different?

We’re not just dreamers, we’re doers. And collaboration is at the core of everything we do.

We know we can’t achieve our big audacious goals alone. We work with others who share our belief that employment has the power to change lives.

What has this got to do with Witton Barracks?

Our mission at Witton Barracks is to build stronger community ties, attract creative thinkers, dream up bold ideas and …. create jobs.

Just as White Box was established to create meaningful employment opportunities for underserved individuals and communities in Australia. This continues with Witton Barracks.

From direct employment within our operations to collaboration with local businesses and industries, our goal is to pave the way for inclusive job growth.
