Work & Training proud to be supporting retrenched workers

Retrenchment in Tasmania has impacted many industries and skillsets, from manufacturing and telecommunications through to meat packing. Often retrenched workers struggle to find jobs in the same industry that use their existing skills or pay comparable wages.

IntoWork Australia have been selected by The Department of Jobs and Small Business to provide ‘Transition Services’ to retrenched workers, those facing retrenchment and employers wishing to partner with an expert. As part of the IntoWork Group, Work & Training are delivering these services in Tasmania North and North West.

Work & Training, a Tasmanian not-for-profit are committed to adding the greatest value to the community through providing pathways to employment across the state. Work & Training’s depth of local knowledge and experience helping people successfully complete training and secure employment means they are best placed to support retrenched workers in the local community.

Job Active providers, The Department of Jobs and Small Business and participating employers are currently referring retrenched workers to Work & Training to help identify competencies and skills that could be transferred to other industries and to help with resume preparation, managing an online presence and interview techniques for a variety of roles and industries. Work & Training and the IntoWork Group are looking forward to delivering successful job outcomes for retrenched workers – ultimately securing new sustainable employment.
