Local Jobs Program


Supporting Australia’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic is the Local Jobs Program.  The Hunter is included in 25 regions throughout Australia where the Program will run to 30 June 2022. A local Taskforce will bring together expertise, resources and access to funding at the local level to focus on reskilling, upskilling and employment pathways for people in the Hunter region.  The Hunter Local Jobs Plan sets out the training and employment challenges and priorities of the region, and associated strategies that will drive the design and implementation of projects to address these challenges.
