Workforce Australia Services
Workforce Australia is the new front door for government employment and skills services. Workskills provides this services to all client types in the Hobart and Southern Tasmania Employment Region. It’s a service to help you find and keep a job, change jobs or create your own job, and connect you with employers.
Workskills is a proud member of the Tasmanian community. We know Tasmanian employers, Tasmanian industries and Tasmanian education and training providers, really well. Since 2015, we’ve matched participants with more than 1500 separate Tasmanian employers, and more than 1800 participants with accredited training (and group training) providers in Southern Tasmania.
We’re dedicated to helping you succeed.
Transition to Work
The Transition to Work employment service helps young people aged 15-24 into work (including apprenticeships and training) or education. Our service is flexible, to suit your individual situation. You’ll get your own coach – and a team of other support staff – to make sure that what we do, is lined up with your goals in life.
Workskills is the only provider of the Australian Government’s Transition to Work services in Southern Tasmania. You can find us in Hobart City, Glenorchy, Rosny, Kingston, Bridgewater, New Norfolk, Huonville; and Sorell. Our offices are set up for private one-on-one appointments and small group activities, as well as shared spaces with computer and Internet access.
Together we will discover your strengths and build on them.
ParentsNext is an Australian Government Initiative. We support parents and carers who receive the Parenting Payment to plan and prepare for work by the time their youngest child starts school. This service is for eligible parents with children under six years of age.
As a parent, your time is limited, so we’ll make sure our meetings are at a time and place that works for you. We offer mentoring and study assistance at local community centres to help you achieve your work goals for the future.
