ETC is happy to announce that we have secured Workforce Australia Employment Services contracts with the Department of Education, Skills and Employment in the Wivenhoe and Somerset Employment Regions, in addition to existing service regions of Gold Coast QLD and Mid North Coast NSW.
This new contract will replace the current jobactive and NEST (New Employment Services Trial) contracts currently being offered by employment services providers, including ETC, across the country.
The Australian Government has invested in a new innovative, flexible, and targeted employment service that will better support job seekers and employers.
This updated service delivery model aligns with ETC’s company Values and Mission, of empowering customers to grow through personalised service.
Commencing on 1 July 2022, Workforce Australia will modernise how job seekers are able to access assistance to prepare for, and connect with, employers.
ETC will provide a simple, supportive, connected and respectful service to all clients.
ETC’s CEO Jenny Barnett said the company was looking forward to expanding the business into new communities and having a positive impact on even more peoples’ lives.
“For more than 30 years, ETC has been helping people secure pathways into training, education and employment,” Mrs Barnett said.
“We look forward to establishing new offices in Chermside, Caboolture, Deception Bay, Kippa Ring, Mitchelton, Nundah, Strathpine, Ipswich, Springfield Central, Goodna and Richlands. As well as continuing to service communities across the NSW Mid North Coast and QLD Gold Coast”.
“Our experience in the employment and training services industry, as well as our extensive understanding of the labour market will create great opportunities for local job seekers.”
ETC will deliver servicing aligned to job seeker needs, including tailored case management for job seekers requiring additional support.
“We will continue to help people in many different situations to overcome their personal challenges, by helping them gain the skills they need to find sustainable employment,” Mrs Barnett said.
“We’ve helped over 90,000 people into work and we are excited to support job seekers in these two new Employment Regions achieve their employment and education goals.”
