Victorians will be placed in apprenticeships and traineeships with public sector employers across the state, as part of efforts to engage young people in the workforce in response to challenges posed by COVID-19.
New apprentices and trainees aged between 15 and 24 are the focus of the ‘Working for Victoria’ initiative, a program aiming to give 300 young Victorians real workplace opportunities.
The State Government has joined forces with the Apprenticeship Employment Network (AEN) to help increase participation rates, while meeting future skills and employment needs.
MEGT’s Recruitment and Management Services (RMS) division is ideally suited to assist public sector employers such as local government agencies, hospitals, schools and others to help fill these vacancies.
From screening candidates to aptitude testing, and ongoing support through the life of the apprenticeship or traineeship, MEGT has almost four decades of experience finding the right people for the right job fit.
Under the ‘Working for Victoria’ initiative, positions will be offered in areas such business administration, community services, sport and recreation, landscape gardening and building and maintenance. The focus is on providing opportunities for 2020 school leavers and the unemployed, particularly those affected by COVID-19.
