Worklinks supporting youth in Queensland with the Somerset Local Jobs Program
Local Jobs Program
Local Jobs Program
The Local Jobs Program runs to 30 June 2025 in 51 regions throughout Australia. It brings together expertise, resources and access to funding at the local level to focus on reskilling, upskilling and employment pathways for people in each region. The program is part of supporting Australia’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is the role of the Employment Facilitator?
Employment Facilitators are dedicated individuals who work with local stakeholders to connect job seekers with training, job opportunities, and other support.
As part of their role, Employment Facilitators will chair Local Jobs and Skills Taskforces across 51 regions and work with local stakeholders, including employers, employment services providers and training organisations, to drive the development of a Local Jobs Plan.
These 51 Employment Facilitators will also support local stakeholders to create targeted projects that meet the priorities of the plan. Employment Facilitators will work with organisations that apply for funding through the Local Recovery Fund to ensure employment opportunities are maximised.
