Employment service heads to the west


By Molly Magennis

A not-for-profit employment organisation is bringing its services to the western suburbs to support job seekers who are struggling to find work.

MEGT will be bringing its Enhanced Services (ES) employment program to the west in July, helping those struggling to find employment develop the necessary skills that meet the needs of employers in the area.

The Enhanced Services program is one of the services provided under the federal government’s new Workforce Australia (WFA).

MEGT’s general manager of employment services Paul Bennett said the organisation is looking forward to providing its employment services to residents of Melbourne’s West.

“We look forward to working with employers to understand their needs in terms of building a

productive workforce by linking them up with skilled, motivated and job-ready workers”, he said.

“MEGT has 40 years of experience assisting job seekers and employers from all types of backgrounds find work or workers, including apprenticeship and traineeship positions as well as delivering specific programs which support survivors of domestic violence and young Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people.

“We are committed to providing employers with a skilled and diverse workforce and continuing to promote the success of our valued jobseekers, just as we have for the last 40 years”.
