Funding boost to help jobseekers
DISADVANTAGED jobseekers are set to benefit from $200,000 of Federal Government funding for MAX Employment's Ipswich Demonstration Pilot.
The program will assist 100 jobseekers to find work. The funding was announced yesterday by Minister for Employment Participation Kate Ellis and Member for Blair Shayne Neumann.
MAX Employment will partner with the Salvation Army to provide a 15-week program that takes a holistic approach to giving participants the skills they need.
"It is great to see MAX Employment and the Salvation Army bringing together their specific areas of expertise to provide a better service to people who are out of work in Ipswich," Mr Neumann said.
Mr Neumann said that he was proud that an organisation in his local community had been recognised with this new funding.
