What will the Worker Transition service do for you?

We can meet with you, your partner and other family members to assess your employment, training, financial and personal needs and then refer you to services that can support you. We can:

  • assist you to identify employment and training services.  We are working with key service providers such as Skills and Job Centres who can help you to determine your training needs; and advise how to access training to suit your employment and career aspirations. These services can assist you with resume preparation; interview preparation and career advice.
  • ensure that you are provided with the financial advice you need.
  • make sure that you or your family members are provided with personal support if you need it. This may include mental health support or support provided through local health and community services.provide you with small business advice and assistance if you are considering starting a new business.

We are here to assist you in the long-term

Our role is to stick with you and assist you to navigate the service system.   Some of you will be happy to engage directly with services, while others may want information about what services are available to you and how to access them. We can work alongside you and find out information on your behalf and check in with you to see that you are getting the support you need.
