Transition to Work services available

Workforce Australia – Transition to Work offers a range of services that provide Australians with support and training to kickstart or elevate their employment opportunities. Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions (MWLFS) has been providing employment services, including Transition to Work for a number of years to assist job seekers in our community with their journey to employment.

As of today, Monday 4 July, MWLFS has extended their Transition to Work services currently operating in Maitland and Cessnock out to people in Kurri Kurri, Greta, Branxton and Singleton.

Transition to Work helps young people aged 15 – 24 into work (including apprenticeships and training) or education. These services are targeted at early school leavers and young people who have experienced difficulty transitioning from education to employment. Income support is not required to take part in these services. Parents or carers of young people who have finished school and are not sure what next step to take, Workforce Australia – Transition to Work provided by Mai-Wel Labour Force Solutions may be able to help.

Staff at MWLFS pride themselves in taking a personalised approach to each individual’s unique situation, wants and needs. They work with young job seekers to learn and explore what they’re interested in, help them set goals, and work with them to achieve that goal, whether that’s be to complete further study or gain employment.

“We’re thrilled to be able to support more young people in our local communities, which is now extending out to Kurri Kurri, Branxton/Greta and Singleton, as well as still supporting people in Maitland and Cessnock,” says Kyllie Tegg, Employment Services General Manager.

“Not only do these services enhance the lives of young people but it also can provide a positive impact on our local employers. We’re calling out to industries, business owners and employers to get in touch with us to understand how this program can also benefit them. We’re aware of the current staffing shortage in the Hunter Valley across a number of industries and we’re also here to help you.”

MWLFS are looking to establish a regional Employment Advisory group, which will work with small through to large employers on how to address and meet their workforce needs. If you’re interested, email today.

If you’re a young person eager to learn about this program or are wanting to join us, or if you’re an interested employer looking to expand your workforce, contact the Mai-Wel Labour Force team by emailing or visit the Transition to Work page of this website.
