New Jobs Victoria funding to help jobseekers find work

Published: 5 September 2017

The Victorian Government will provide $1.3 million to the Brotherhood of St Laurence to support jobseekers across the Moonee Valley region.

The Minister for Industry and Employment, Wade Noonan, recently announced that the not-for-profit agency will receive funding through Jobs Victoria to place 80 jobseekers into work. The program will be delivered from the Flemington Community Centre.

The Brotherhood of St Laurence works with more than 110 employers across Melbourne to place long-term jobseekers into ongoing employment.

Jobs Victoria is being boosted so it can provide an additional $11.6 million to 13 agencies across Victoria, which will help another 1200 jobseekers with barriers to employment find work.

Jobs Victoria has now placed more than 1700 long-term jobseekers in work which equates to more than 40 jobs a week since the program began 11 months ago.
