Albany Jobs and Skills Centre

Located on the Albany campus of South Regional TAFE, the Albany Jobs and Skills Centre offers a range of information and services around training and career development.

We can provide free professional and practical advice on training and employment opportunities including careers advice, apprenticeship and training information, Aboriginal services and partnerships with industry, and help with job searching and direct links into employment. Our team also has expertise in business and workplace development and welcomes employers and business owners to discuss the workplace needs.

The Albany Jobs and Skills Centre is supported by career services from Worklink, and Aboriginal services from Impact Services. We also provide outreach services at other locations such as Esperance, Katanning, Mount Barker, Denmark. We attend these locations on a regular basis and encourage you to phone our office on 13 64 64 or 08 6371 3740 or email the team at albanyjsc@srtafe.wa.edu.au to see when our next visit is scheduled.  

We have established a very strong partnership with the Albany Chamber of Commerce and Industry responsible for facilitating the Working Together program.

We also work collaboratively with industry to offer information, support and advice to business owners and operators in the Great Southern to attract, recruit and retain Aboriginal employees. 

Our convenient location near the heart of Albany makes it easy to get to by public transport. More information about getting here and parking is below. We look forward to seeing you soon!
