Helping the Hunter get skilled

A new initiative designed to assist Hunter employers to address the local skills shortage has been announced. A program from Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions will focus on identifying skill shortages in this region and aims to encourage local employers to take on eligible jobseekers as a part-time trainee or apprentice by providing financial subsidies.
Barry Miller, Manager of Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions (Cessnock and Kurri Kurri) believes that in today’s turbulent business environment, “Skills for the Hunter” will be of great benefit to local employers needing to meet skill shortages. There are a limited number of six month subsidised placements available, for more information you can contact Andrea (Maitland/ Dungog) on 4934 3144 or Ashleigh (Cessnock/Kurri Kurri) 4991 6333.
