More Local Job Seekers In Pearce Win With Work For The Dole
Posted on Monday, 5 January 2004
Work for the Dole continues to go from strength to strength, generating both worthwhile work experience for jobseekers and better services for local communities, Federal Member for Pearce, Judi Moylan, said today
“I welcome the announcement by the Employment Services Minister, Mal Brough, of 20 new Work for the Dole projects across the electorate,” she said.
“The Chittering, Northam, Pingelly and Toodyay communities will benefit through projects including construction, landscaping, painting and Telecentre activities,” Ms Moylan said.
“Unemployed people who sign up for these projects will gain a valuable connection and insight into the world of work, and what employers are looking for when they have jobs to fill.”
The Chittering project will involve assisting in the construction of a church involving grano, stonework and landscaping.
In Northam in order to beautify and modernise community areas participants will take part in landscaping, painting, paving and the installation of reticulation.
The Toodyay project is along similar lines with the enhancement of the Pelham Reserve Lookout, participants will construct rock retaining walls both there and in Duidggee Park.
Pingelly participants will assist with Telecentre activities including upgrades to the venue.
Ms Moylan said the success of Work for the Dole projects both in Pearce and across Australia was testimony to the creative input and support of local communities.
In this round of Work for the Dole, Mr Brough announced 305 new projects across Australia, providing places for 3,356 job seekers.
