In Perth’s north, four Jobs and Skills Centres provide personalised services to individuals, businesses and industry. These centres cover the area from the northern banks of the Swan River, through the central business district of Perth, out to the eastern areas of Midland and Balga, and extending all the way north beyond Joondalup to Yanchep.
The four centres located at Joondalup (northern suburbs) — Balga (eastern suburbs), Midland (north eastern suburbs) and Perth (CBD and surrounding suburbs) — provide professional and practical support to individuals on training and employment opportunities via one-on-one and group career advice sessions, apprenticeship and traineeship information and guidance on accredited and non-accredited training options.
Our centres also provide culturally appropriate services to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the community.
Engaging with businesses, our experienced industry liaison officers provide support with workforce development planning and skills analysis, recruitment and selection strategies, apprenticeship/traineeship information and assistance with the development of Aboriginal engagement, recruitment and retention plans.
Emerging industries with high employment projections within the north metropolitan region include infrastructure, health and aged care, cyber security, hospitality and retail. The Jobs and Skills Centres promote these high-growth industries to people looking for meaningful and sustainable employment within the region.
