Training and employment opportunities

Mr Chester said, "Employment Facilitator Luke Arber, will continue his great work in identifying gaps in our workforce and create suitable training and employment opportunities, throughout Gippsland there have been many challenges with the closure of Hazelwood Power Station, drought, bushfires and COVID 19 leading to unemployment and gaps in the workforce. This tailored approach will ensure job seekers in Gippsland are skilled in relevant fields of workforce shortage."

Delivering local jobs

Gippsland Employment Facilitator Luke Arber said the extension ensured he could continue to provide opportunities for job seekers and those looking to reskill. "Providing opportunities for locals to up-skill and retrain ensures a strong workforce in our region,"

"This extension means Gippslanders will be able to continue to access these opportunities and remain attractive to potential employers. I look forward to continuing to deliver the Local Jobs Program in Gippsland and welcome the opportunity to meet with industry and businesses." Mr Arber said.

The Local Jobs Program has been extended to June 30, 2025 and is expanding from 25 Employment Regions to cover all 51 Employment Regions across Australia, which will increase the number of facilitator services on the ground around the country.

More details can be found at local job-seekers.
