The Tasmanian Government is working to find new roles for those made redundant in current high-demand sectors including in the utilities, not for profit and healthcare/medical sectors.

The Rapid Response Skills Initiative provides up to $3,000 for training and career advice.

Since March:

  • 330 Tasmanians have sought help with the Rapid Response Skills Initiative
  • 130 Tasmanians have been referred to the Skills Matching Service
  • 30 Tasmanian displaced workers have been connected with local employers through the Skills Matching Service
  • 258 Tasmanians have signed up to training, or are actively pursuing training options to broaden their skills through the Rapid Response Skills Training Support Program.

Individuals who want help back in to work are encouraged to apply through Skills Tasmania.
