COVID-19 Update // March 2020
As a result of the impact of the pandemic, the Government has extended the current suspension of mutual obligation requirements until 9 June 2020. These arrangements are in place for all jobactive and Disability Employment Services job seekers.

We have many training courses available for you that will add value to your resume and assist you to gain employment. Despite the COVID-19 economic impact, there are jobs available in the marketplace and you should be searching and applying for these daily.
So don’t delay, contact our team to HELP you maximise your chances of a getting a great job!

What we're doing to help you
We understand that this is a worrying time for all of us and that there is a lot of talk in the media that unemployment may grow. We've created a Frequently Asked Questions section to answer some of your questions.
With HELP’s unique infrastructure and capabilities on the ground, we have moved quickly to source vacancies in industries now hiring. These can be found on our online jobs portal. We have also made several changes to our delivery methods of courses through Help Training Institute (RTO 1653) to support you in preparing for roles in these industries.
We encourage you to use this time wisely to increase your chances of finding employment.
