SA government to roll out $1.2m initiative

The state government will roll out new services and support to connect automotive supply chain workers to jobs with a new $1.2 million initiative.

The initiative will provide a one-point contact through the Drive Your Future Jobs Connection Service to directly link up to 500 automotive workers to job opportunities.

“The Government is committed to supporting auto supply chain workers and their families as Holden proceeds the closure of its Elizabeth plant in October,” said Automotive Transformation Minister, Kyam Maher.

“Communication, team work, reliability, attention to detail, problem solving and producing high work standards under pressure are just some of the common transferable skills auto workers can bring to a business,” he said.

Up to 120 auto supply chain workers will reportedly be able to gain valuable work experience and formal accreditation on job sites across Adelaide. Eight skills and employment projects will be developed with employers from industries such as health and community services, construction and transport, as well as registered training organisations in the coming months.

More workshops for auto workers, covering the jobs market, interview skills, resumes and cover letters, transferable skills, finding work online and digital literacy will be held across metropolitan Adelaide.

From October, the state government will host further information sessions to ensure workers are fully aware of the support available to them.

“With Holden’s closure just under two months away, we are doubling down on our support for automotive workers to help them move into new employment,” said Premier Jay Weatherill.

“Automotive workers have a range of trade, technical and personal skills and experience and there are many employers interested in the skills these workers have, and we want to make this connection easy for them,” he said.
