Local Jobs Program

Supporting Australians back into work

At SSI, we are always looking for opportunities to support new arrivals and all Australians with job opportunities. This is reflected through our array of end-to-end employment programs, our ability to provide an eco-system of support to find jobs for clients, and the opportunities we provide to create employment pathways.

This is particularly important and central to our core value of providing equal opportunities and building economic recovery in what has been an unprecedented time throughout COVID-19. The Local Jobs Program is a Federal Government-funded initiative that is a first of its kind, designed in response to the impact COVID-19 has had on the economy.

The program intends to boost employment in regions hardest hit by COVID-19. SSI successfully tendered for roles as Employment Facilitators within this program, which resulted in three staff members being appointed as Employment Facilitators across three key regions of QLD and NSW (Sydney South West, Gold Coast and Wivenhoe).

Through the Local Jobs Program, Employment Facilitators will work with employers and other key local stakeholders to develop employment solutions at a local level and support Australians back into work.

They will work with employers, employment services providers and training providers to develop and leverage opportunities to match jobseekers with current and emerging employment and training opportunities.

The program focuses on reskilling, upskilling and employment pathways to assist people to move back into jobs as the economy recovers.

SSI will continue to play our part in supporting the Local Jobs Program and boosting economic recovery in regions that need it most.
