A New Future for Jobseekers in Aged, Health and Disability Care

21-Jul-2017

In late June the Minister for Industry & Employment, Wade Noonan and Member for Pascoe Vale, Lizzie Blandthorn announced a doubling of our current Jobs Victoria Employment (JVEN) contract to provide a further 150 jobseekers from migrant and refugee backgrounds with work in the care sector.  The announcement was made at Rathdowne Place Aged Care – a state of the art facility in Carlton, where 15 New Futures Training graduates are already employed.
