Local team, local knowledge helping you land that local job

Industry specialists Brad Platschinda and Nick Scammell will deliver Employability Skills Training across Bairnsdale, Traralgon and Warragul.

Industry specialists Brad Platschinda and Nick Scammell have joined The Personnel Group to support Gippsland jobseekers into work.

The Personnel Group will deliver Workforce Australia’s Employability Skills Training (Block 2) across Bairnsdale, Traralgon and Warragul.

Employability Skills Training (EST) gives jobseekers using the Digital Online Servicing platform the ability to meet their requirements by undertaking an intensive 75-hour training course over three consecutive weeks.

A key feature of Employability Skills Training is the constant information flow on what’s happening in the local employment market and how jobseekers can tailor a resume and interview to gain employment.

In addition, jobseekers may undertake a micro-credential in an area of interest to meet local employer needs.

The Personnel Group is a not-for-profit organisation supporting jobseekers to gain and maintain skills and employment.

It has 36 years of experience developing people’s employment potential and establishing employer networks to help identify employment opportunities.

“Both Brad and Nick have an in-depth knowledge of what’s happening in the Gippsland region,” The Personnel Group CEO John Gibbons says.

“It is so important that local people, with local knowledge, support jobseekers.

“As a new service to Gippsland, we have deliberately sought team members who are locals and know how the area works and what employers are really looking for.”

EST is free to jobseekers using the Digital online platform; however, any jobseeker can access the course with their Provider paying the required fee.
