Salvos offer free job training

BUNDABERG jobseekers can get ahead in the job hunt with free training provided to eligible participants at the Salvation Army Tom Quinn Community Centre.

Community services manager Tom Osborne said people could take the winning approach by gaining help from the centre to improve resumes, interview and computer skills.

“We have experienced trainers who have helped many local people get jobs,” he said.

“The only criteria is that you are over 17 — it does not matter how long you have been looking for work and you don’t have to be on Centrelink or other benefits to qualify for this free training.”

The Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative funds the course and two sessions are being run – Young MATES for over 17s, and Mature MATES for people aged 40-plus.

The course runs for eight weeks.

An induction course will be held today between 9am and 11am.
