ETC is about to triple in size following the Department of Employment’s announcement yesterday that it has been offered employment services contracts in the Mid North Coast, North Coast and Gold Coast.
ETC’s Acting CEO Jenny Barnett said this was the best result the company’s employment services team could have hoped for.
“We are absolutely thrilled with the news and really excited to be able to continue to service our heartland in the Mid North Coast. We are also looking forward to expanding our service delivery in the neighbouring regions of the North Coast and Gold Coast.” Ms Barnett said.
Ms Barnett said the contract offer would mean that ETC would be expanding its 8 existing employment services sites in the Mid North Coast by opening up 19 new offices located between Bulahdelah in the south and Beenleigh in the north.
“ETC has been helping job seekers find work and filling vacancies for employers in the Mid North Coast for the past 26 years,” Ms Barnett said.
“Currently ranked as the 2nd highest performing provider in the country, this contract offer is a great reflection on the amazing people we have working for us and their consistently high performance. It’s also a credit to our many business partners in the community.
“The new contract offers will give us an opportunity to expand our employment service delivery into new markets and we are looking forward to being able to change the course of more people’s lives.”
Ms Barnett said job seekers and employers could expect some exciting new initiatives from ETC.
“Our new service delivery model will be centred on active engagement of our job seekers and developing their job searching skills so that they are more job competitive,” Ms Barnett said.
“We will also work collaboratively with other employment providers to ensure we meet the needs of employers.
Ms Barnett said ETC had also been offered contracts to deliver the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS) in the Mid North Coast and North Coast.
“ETC has been a NEIS provider for the past six years and we are excited to be able to continue to help unemployed people who want to become independent of Centrelink payments by starting their own business,” she said.
