Workforce Australia Local Jobs Townsville (includes Mt Isa)

Local jobs program

(Local Jobs) supports the development and implementation of tailored approaches to accelerate reskilling, upskilling and employment across Australia and seeks to provide tailored responses to support local labour markets.

The aim of the program is to ensure the maximum number of people are placed in appropriate employment or training opportunities to meet employer needs in the current labour market. This will be achieved by bringing together expertise, resources and access to funding at the local level to focus on reskilling, upskilling and employment pathways.

A key feature of the program is bringing together key local stakeholders including employers, employment services providers, education and training organisations to work collaboratively to design projects and develop solutions and Local Recovery Fund activities that skill people to meet local employer demand.

Eligible Workforce Australia Services Participants will be able to participate in activities funded through the Local Recovery Fund.

The program provides for:

  • Employment Facilitator
  • Local Jobs and Skills Taskforce
  • Local Jobs Plan tailored to local labour market circumstances
  • Projects and activities that provide local solutions to address barriers to employment, funded through a Local Recovery Fund or the National Priority Fund
