Gforce was founded as the Geelong and District Group Apprentices in 1983. It was established as a not-for-profit Group Training Organisation with an initial purpose to address youth unemployment in the northern suburbs of Geelong through the provision of apprenticeships and traineeships.
In 2002, the company rebranded to G-Force Recruitment to better reflect the growing range of recruitment services it offered. It had acquired a private recruitment firm (Marshmans Personnel), and established the Gforce New Apprentice Centre and Gforce Staffing Solutions divisions after winning Federal Government contracts. In 2008, the company acquired People@Work Recruitment, which it merged with Marshmans Personnel, and now operates under the People@Work brand.
In 2011, the company acquired Strategies 4 Excellence, a School-based Traineeship program to provide youth with pathways to careers. In the same year, the company changed its branding to Gforce Employment Solutions, a ‘one stop shop’ service offer which ‘matches businesses with the best people’. Today the Gforce group operates as three business units: Apprentices and Trainees (including School-based trainees); People @ Work Recruitment and Staffing Solutions.
In 2013, Gforce celebrated 30 years of providing quality employment services to the Geelong, Ballarat and Wyndham Regions.
In 2015, Gforce's Work for the Dole Coordinator contract commenced in the Ballarat region.
In 2016, Gforce Youth Employment - (Transition to Work) commenced in the Barwon and Ballarat regions.

Company Director Kim Nankivell
Consulting Thursdays and Saturdays in Ocean Grove
Consulting at: 27 Guthridge St ( Bellarine Allied Health Group)
Ph: 03 52563642
Kim Nankivell discovered her passion for Podiatry when serious lower limb injuries threatened her career as an elite Junior Sprinter.
After seeing many different Health Professionals, the most successful treatment for her conditions was found when she visited a Podiatrist.
At this point Kim realised that she could combine her interests in sport and helping people as a career.
Kim graduated with a Bachelor degree of Podiatry in 1999 and worked for several years in a private Podiatry practice based in Adelaide.
In 2001 Kim purchased a sole practitioner practice based in Naracoorte, South Australia, where she grew up.
The business steadily grew and after a few years Kim employed another Podiatrist to assist with the busy clinic.
Continued growth saw the addition of Mt Gambier and then multiple clinics in Adelaide, as well as servicing Western Victoria, including Edenhope, Casterton, Coleraine, Hamilton and Portland.
Having recently relocated to Barwon Heads, Kim is excited to be joining Bellarine Allied Health Group and looks forward to assisting the Surfside Waves club members and the local community with their Podiatry needs.
Kim will continue her role as company Director for myPod Podiatry and looks forward to bringing all of the myPod treatment options to Bellarine Allied Health Group.
In her spare time, Kim enjoys spending time with her husband Dylan and children Paige & Violet. Kim enjoys playing golf and also loves snowboarding and water sports.

We all need to drink water, but imagine a drink bottle that actually gets you excited about it. Picture its funky design, clever technology and global appeal – you could use it on wild adventures, in gyms, on the road, at home and everywhere around the world from Sydney to San Francisco... Justin Hickey imagined it. So he created HydraPlay.
It seems like fate that Justin would lead a company that revolves around water. Since the age of 13, the ocean has been an important part of his life – as a seasoned international yachting competitor, many of Justin’s greatest challenges have been won and lost at sea.
Inspired by the power of water and our eternal need for it, Justin began work on what may go down as his greatest idea ever – a drink bottle you’d never want to leave at home. The name HydraPlay was formed to reflect the core elements of the brand – health, hydration, water and activity.
These elements carried through in the making of the drink bottle, along with great input from our quickly forming HydraPlay team. The final brief was strict, but there was no turning back:
