The recent launch of 13 regional and metropolitan TAFE Jobs and Skills Centres (JSCs) has provided a one-stop shop for small businesses looking to recruit or train staff.

The centres provide careers, training, and employment advice and assistance and serve as a direct link between businesses seeking staff and TAFE trainees and apprentices looking for career opportunities.

Services to business

TAFE JSCs can provide advice and assistance to support employers and business owners. They can help, if you're looking for:

  • advice and resources to support your workforce planning
  • recruitment assistance, including for apprentices and trainees
  • information on training for employees
  • advertising employment opportunities on the jobs board or Aboriginal-specific jobs board
  • resources and advice on Aboriginal recruitment and retention strategies.

Additional information can be found on the Jobs and Skills WA website, including centre locations, jobs boards, templates, links and resources to assist you to better plan, attract, develop and retain a skilled workforce.

Recruitment is only part of the job

You work hard to meet your business goals, and investing time into planning and developing your workforce can be a challenge. Having the right information, tools and resources to support the process is the first step to success.

Read our advice on employer obligations, to ensure you comply with the legal requirements and make staff decisions that are best for your business.

Whether you are starting a business, replacing staff or growing your business, equipping employees with updated skills can help your business adapt and stay ahead of the competition.

JSCs can provide advice on options for training and developing staff, with further information available on their website.

Customised training packages can, under certain circumstances, also be developed specifically for your business operations.
