About Us

Proud traditional owners connected to country

Our Origin

Regional Enterprise Development Institute (REDI.E) exists to support our communities, by opening doors to opportunity, positive career pathways and economic development.

We are striving to create partnerships that will bring more industry to our regions, ensuring their long term sustainability.

We are an Indigenous owned and managed organisation, proud to deliver employment, training and community services within the Murdi Paaki region and other parts of NSW.

REDI.E is a place where job seekers come to find like minded people with the same goals - and employers come to find a talent pool of well trained, qualified employees.

We are about delivering more than just contracts. We develop relationships and cultivate talent. We operate with complete transparency and respect the diversity of each community.

We live and work here - we are invested in the outcomes, because our communities are our people.
