Government Jobs Program for Top End communities
Monday, 27th May 2013 at 10:14 am

A Federal Government plan to help more people in remote areas of the Northern Territory to get jobs will start on July 1.
The plan is part of the Federal Government’s $1.5 billion Remote Jobs and Communities Program (RJCP).

Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations Bill Shorten said the providers chosen to deliver RJCP in seven regions across the Territory’s Top End would help ensure local people in communities were ready to take on local jobs.

The providers chosen will work in communities including Arnhem Land, Wadeye, Humpty Doo, Maningrida, Gunbalanya and Beswick.

"They will support individuals who are not working to participate in training or activities that will contribute to their communities as well as making them more work-ready,” Shorten said.

Minister for Indigenous Employment and Economic Development Julie Collins said the program would take four jobs services functions and put them into one.

"Under RJCP, job seekers including those on Community Development and Employment Project wages, will be able to go to just one provider to get the personalised support they need,” she said.

"Federal Member for Lingiari Warren Snowdon said RJCP providers would also be working closely with communities in their region to set out priorities and goals for participation, training, employment and long-term development.

"The program is based on community and involvement. It will encourage and promote collaborative, community-driven approaches to employment and participation activities,"

Information about RJCP is available at www.deewr.gov.au/rjcp
