    • Jobs and Skills Centres to provide free advice at Recruit WA from today
    • Recruit WA joining with Perth Tradie Expo to showcase trades careers
    • Connecting job seekers with employers
    • Opportunities to explore exciting training pathways to employment

    Western Australia's Jobs and Skills Centres are taking their employment advice and assistance on the road, with an exhibit at Recruit WA.


    Recruit WA will co-locate with the Perth Tradie Expo at Ascot Racecourse from today until Sunday (June 17-19) to connect jobseekers and employers, and showcase a range of careers in the construction, mining, infrastructure, engineering and transport industries.


    The Jobs and Skills Centres will be on hand to show job seekers how they can explore exciting training pathways to employment, as well as inform employers about the many initiatives available to them.


    Jobs and Skills Centres are one-stop-shops for free, friendly and professional careers, training and employment advice.


    Whether you're looking for an apprenticeship or traineeship, need help finding an employer, or are considering a pathway into a trade through a pre-apprenticeship or pre-traineeship, Jobs and Skills Centres can help you on your journey.


    With WA's strong economic position and record high job vacancy rates, there has never been a better time to upskill or learn a trade.


    The McGowan Government is continuing to support job seekers and employers through a range of new initiatives to future-proof the workforce, with career changers, job seekers and under 25's in the box seat to start a life-changing career.


    Initiatives to boost the trades workforce include the highly successful Job Ready programs, which through the combination of a short course and work placement, provide pathways to employment, apprenticeships and traineeships in bricklaying, infrastructure (civil construction) and driller's offsider roles.


    To find out more about Job Ready programs and how the Jobs and Skills Centres can help you with your next career move, visit www.jobsandskills.wa.gov.au or call your local centre on 13 64 64.
