Local Business Confidence
Hi, we're Matt, Micheal, Angela, David and Grant your Workforce Solutions Team from IMPACT, and we're keen to get out and meet you, but before we do, we'd like to tell you a little more about the new Back to
Work financial assistance packages for employers. Have you heard about it? There are Employer Support Payments of $10,000 or $15,000, which can be claimed for employing an eligible job seeker on a part or full-time basis. We think this is great news; it's time local businesses felt confident in employing new staff and we know it could really boost business productivity for you. If you have always wanted to take on a new employee, but money has held you back, then it's time we had a chat. To find out more on how to access Back to Work funding and apply for an Employer Support Payment call us on 4153 4233.
Back to Work is a Queensland Government initiative

Navigating Pathways Past High School 
Transition to Work staff, Milly and Sam, were invited to Isis High School to spend time with a school group involved in the Boost program. The aim of the program, run by Debbie (Bundaberg Regional Council)
and Leanne (Education Queensland Guidance Counsellor), is to provide girls with knowledge and tools as they navigate their way into employment or further training. Among the girls there was a variety of cultures, backgrounds, academic history, location and dreams for the future. Discussions were had covering topics such as goal setting, resume writing, meeting potential employers, asking the right questions and presentation. With a focus on youth, the girls were given helpful tips on things such as transferrable skills, making that first impression count and not giving up.
