What is Transition to Work?
Transition to Work is a government funded service provided by Mission Australia that helps young people gain skills and confidence to find employment (including apprenticeships or traineeships) or education.
We are experienced in working with young people and employers, and have strong links with local businesses, community services and schools.
How our employer service works
We can provide you with access to workers aged 15-24 and can also help if you need to recruit trainees or apprentices.
Working as a long-term partner in your business, we provide you with support and advice on your workforce development needs, and make you aware of the options available, including access to wage subsidies - ask us for more information. Once your recruit has started we continue to provide support for 26 weeks to make sure they meet your expectations.
