MEET THE TEAM

4gr is privately owned and operated by business partners and friends Beth Evans and Gillian Baldwin. They launched 4gr in 2013 with four good reasons… to create a legacy for their collective four children. They chose to do this with a business that creates capacity, building independence for people with various barriers.

DIRECTORS

Beth Evans & Gillian Baldwin

Gill and Beth both have extensive experience in corporate Human Resources, Recruitment, Training, and people management. Prior to starting 4gr, both Beth & Gill spent eight years working in social services supporting and training long-term unemployed and individuals experiencing disadvantage and barriers to gaining and maintaining employment.

Gill and Beth have completed further tertiary studies to support their existing knowledge and skills in recruitment and training. Gill now has a Master of Disability Policy and Practice from Flinders University and Beth has her Graduate Certificate in Career Development from James Cook University. These studies have added a breadth and depth to the services 4gr offer, providing our participants with an even greater specialised, professional service.

From humble beginnings in 2013, 4gr has grown into a talented, broader team of 20+ staff. 4gr staff are a team of Customised Employment Specialists working with individuals and employers to create bespoke employment opportunities, transforming lives, workplaces, and communities.
