Victorian jobs guarantee | Shepparton News




The Job Guarantee scheme and Jobs that Matter campaign, announced last week, aims to strengthen the state’s pipeline of essential workers and ensure that more Victorians are supported when and where they need it most.

There are several thousand jobs statewide to help people who need extra care and support. There are also jobs available for trainees and people entering the workforce for the first time, through to experienced practitioners and for Aboriginal people, Victorians from diverse cultures and languages ​​and regions.

The government will work closely with the Victorian Council of Social Services and leading community sector bodies to support the success of this important program, connecting the right people to the right jobs.
