  • I have an innovative idea on how to better connect employers with regional Australians looking for work

The Regional Employment Trials (RET) are bringing together local governments, employers, training organisations, not-for-profits, employment services providers and other community organisations to develop tailored employment initiatives that meet local needs and improve regional employment outcomes in 10 disadvantage regions across Australia.

Local stakeholders in the 10 selected regions are encouraged to develop employment project proposals for initial consideration by their local Regional Development Australia (RDA) committees. Activities are expected to better connect employers with regional Australians looking for work, identify future employment, training or work experience opportunities, and help address local skills gaps.

  • I would like to train job seekers for specific roles within the organisation

Launch into Work is a pilot program for pre-employment projects across a range of industries.

The program works with employers to identify recruitment challenges and opportunities, and address these through co-designed pre-employment projects tailored to industry and employer needs. The program encourages different approaches that better match job seekers and employers to test if this reduces the rate of staff turnover.

Projects are co-designed with employers, jobactive providers, registered training organisations and other stakeholders to ensure both employer and job seeker needs are met.
