Get job ready at Recruit WA & Perth Tradie Expo!

Western Australia’s Jobs and Skills Centres (JSCs) are taking their employment advice and assistance on the road, with an exhibit at Recruit WA. Recruit WA will co-locate with the Perth Tradie Expo at Ascot Racecourse from today until Sunday (17—19 June) to showcase a range of careers in the construction, mining, infrastructure, engineering and transport industries and connect jobseekers and employers.

Jobs and Skills Centres will be on hand to show jobseekers how they can explore exciting training pathways to employment, as well as inform employers about the many initiatives available to them. JSCs are one-stop-shops for free, friendly and professional careers, training and employment advice. Whether you’re looking for an apprenticeship or traineeship, need help finding an employer, or considering a pathway into a trade through a pre-apprenticeship or pre-traineeship, Jobs and Skills Centres can help you on your journey.

With WA’s strong economic position and record high job vacancy rates, there has never been a better time to upskill or learn a trade. The WA State Government is continuing to support jobseekers and employers through a range of new initiatives to future-proof the workforce, with career changers, jobseekers and under 25s in the box seat to start a life changing career.

Initiatives to boost the trades workforce include the highly successful Job Ready programs, which through the combination of a short course and work placement provide pathways to employment, apprenticeships and traineeships in chef, bricklaying, infrastructure (civil construction) and driller’s offsider roles.

“The McGowan Government is investing in a range of initiatives to support the training sector, as well as working closely with industry to address skill shortages," said Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery. “Right now there is a large number of exciting programs and projects happening right across Western Australia, creating a pipeline of work and fantastic opportunities across many industries. Western Australia’s Jobs and Skills Centres are the gateway to the local VET sector, with free services and accessible to everyone – be sure to pay them a visit at Recruit WA.”
