Today MAX Employment will begin delivering the Australian Government’s five year jobactive contract in 29 regions across Australia, assisting job seekers transition from welfare to work.
MAX Employment Managing Director Deborah Homewood said MAX Employment sites open their doors today ready to service job seekers and employers better than ever before.
“MAX Employment sites across the country are equipped to deliver more innovative and integrated services for both job seekers and employers.
“Since the Government’s announcement in March, our people have worked tirelessly to create a new world-class operating environment that will enable more job seekers to find and maintain meaningful employment.
“With the introduction of new technologies and applications, job seekers will enjoy improved connectivity to employers and a tailored approach for sustained success,” she said.
Ms Homewood said MAX Employment is focused on better preparing job seekers to meet the needs of employers, ensuring the best match possible for local businesses.
“We are excited to continue working with our community and employer connections to provide job seekers access to employment opportunities that align with their skills and experience,” she said.
MAX Employment will deliver jobactive services in all states and territories across Australia in conjunction with their national partner yourtown, who will provide specialist youth employment services.
In selected regions, MAX will partner with Indigenous and regional expert providers Rainbow Gateway and Sureway. MAX Employment will also work with national recruiter Manpower to boost access to job opportunities.
yourtown CEO Tracy Adams said today marked the start of better and more specialized services assisting disadvantaged young people thanks to the MAX Solutions partnership with yourtown.
“The partnership with MAX Employment is an exciting development in pursuing our goal of supporting disadvantaged youth,” Ms Adams said.
“Youth unemployment is a barometer for the future health of our country and when young people can’t get a job, start their life and provide for themselves and others, a raft of other social problems follow,” she said.
Today will also mark the start of MAX Solution’s Work for the Dole Coordinator service, operating in 14 regions nationally and helping job seekers gain practical work skills to increase their opportunity for employment.
The jobactive and Work for the Dole services commence from today and replace the previous Job Services Australia contracts.
