South Coast Part of $1 Million Regional Employment Trial
We are very excited to get stuck into creating more jobs on the South Coast as part of a new regional employment initiative funded by the Federal government. Working with a local facilitator, we will be looking for a fresh approach when it comes to supporting the unemployed into work and creating more long-term job opportunities.
Mentoring schemes, work experience programs and the upskilling of people looking for work are just some of the areas where there is an opportunity for investment. The trial is a fantastic opportunity for the South Coast to shine and have our ideas extended across the region and throughout Australia.
