The MAX Employment VTEC team is working hard to support the Government’s new Employment Parity initiative, announced last week by the Minister for Indigenous Affairs, the Hon. Nigel Scullion.

VTEC Manager for the Wheatbelt, Goldfields and Northern Territory regions Paul Buswell alongside Toowoomba and Western Downs Regional Manager Rachelle Thomas attended the announcement of the new initiative at the VTEC Training and Development course in Sydney last week. Here they also had the opportunity to meet with the Minister to discuss the initiative further.

The initiative aims to get 20,000 Indigenous Australian job seekers into employment by 2020. Selected businesses will be invited to become ‘parity employers’ through increasing the level of Indigenous employees within their business.

The announcement was met with much excitement from the MAX VTEC team, as the program will mean more job seekers can be placed into VTEC, and job seekers who are not currently a part of VTEC can still be placed into jobs as part of the initiative.

The first three months of the year have already been successful for the MAX VTEC program with 117 guaranteed positions available in Western Australia alone for VTEC clients.
