Welcome to Yaama Personnel
My name is William Beale the owner and operator of YAAMA Indigenous Personnel. I am a Kamilaroi man from Collarenebri, NSW. I was raised in Moree, NSW were I attended school until I received a sports scholarship; to attend Erindale College and partake in the Talented Sports Program as part of their rugby union team. I now reside in Canberra, ACT with my wife and our three young children. I have lived and worked in urban, rural and remote parts of the ACT and NSW Aboriginal communities.
I have over 10 years working experience in the employment and recruitment services industry. Where I have provided mentoring and employment advice to Indigenous people in their communities, while at the same time to various Government and non-Government agencies.
I sit on numerous boards for Reconciliation Action Plan committees and Indigenous Employment Strategy’s committees as well as being involved with sporting and community organisations. I have spent the last 15 years organising, coaching and attending Touch football, Rugby League and Rugby Union trips, for Aboriginal school boys/girls, men and women.
I am driven by a passion to improve employment opportunities and gain successful career opportunities for Indigenous Australians, while assisting Non-Indigenous Australians gain a clearer understanding of our culture.
Yaama comes from the Kamilaroi people in Northern NSW and means “Hello”.
Promote understanding of Indigenous culture and facilitate better working and social relationships, between non-Indigenous and Indigenous people, through a cooperative working environment within the workplace.
