The jobactive employment program will help employers in the community find work-ready employees and job seekers find and keep a job or source suitable Work for the Dole activities.
Job seekers in the local community will have access to tailored support based on their assessed employment needs, including help with looking for work and writing a resume, to preparing for interviews and considering job referrals in the local area. Alongside assessing employment potential and devising personalised plans for each individual, WISE will continue to work closely with local employers to understand their business, the role requirements and offer job-specific training.
Matthew Lambelle, WISE Employment CEO, says that “with the new WISE offices providing the best possible service to job seekers and employers we hope to help disadvantaged people gain meaningful work and employers find the right staff. We look forward to assist job seekers and strengthen the links with local businesses in these new locations under jobactive.”
Each year WISE Employment supports and empowers more than 10,000 employers and job seekers from a diverse range of backgrounds by providing cost-free advice, training and other support to assist with employment across New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
