CRS Australia employment services consultant Colin Burney is helping with the drive to find 100 jobs in the 30 days of November.
Organisers of Shepparton’s jobs and skills drive say the project is on track, with 27 jobs filled since the start of this month.
The month-long intensive campaign aims to find 100 jobs during the 30 days of November.
Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations employment co-ordinator Julie Tyndall said she was pleased with the results so far.
‘‘It’s quite exciting,’’ Ms Tyndall said.
‘‘We’ve had 30 to 40 people a day coming through.’’
The drive features a hub on Maude St where jobseekers can access employment and training opportunities and information.
CRS Australia employment services consultant Colin Burney set up shop at the hub this month and said the project included a focus on finding jobs for people with disabilities and illnesses.
‘‘That’s what we’re there for, getting people into employment, but we specialise in helping people who have disabilities or impairments ,’’ Mr Burney said.
He said employers were often unaware of the incentives available for taking on his clients.
‘‘Probably the biggest one is there’s a program called the Disabled Australian Apprentice Wage Support,’’ Mr Burney said.
‘‘So if an employer’s looking to put someone into a traineeship or traditional apprenticeship, the employer attracts a subsidy of $104.30 a week, for the duration.’’
Mr Burney said people could register themselves for the free service, or be referred to CRS Australia through Centrelink or their doctor. He encouraged people to visit his team at the hub.
‘‘Touch base with us .
The hub is at 294 Maude St, next to Centrelink, and is open from 10
