Industry Workforce Advisors appointed

CheckUP has been contracted by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) to deliver the Industry Workforce Advisors initiative for the health industry. Industry Workforce Advisors have been established under the Good people. Good jobs: Queensland Workforce Strategy 2022-23 to help employers:

  • identify solutions to their workforce challenges
  • connect with relevant programs and funding, industry-based initiatives and grant funding, and Australian Government wage subsidies and employer incentives.

Your Industry Workforce Advisors

To ensure tailored support can be provided to small to medium businesses across Queensland we have established two new dedicated Industry Workforce Advisors to work with our stakeholders. These are:

  • First Nations Industry Workforce Advisor (Health Care and Social Assistance)
  • Health Industry Workforce Advisor.

We are pleased to welcome Andrew Legg to CheckUP who has commenced in the First Nations Industry Workforce Advisor (Health Care and Social Assistance) role. 

Vicky Meyer, who previously coordinated our Health Industry Skills Advisor program at CheckUP will now be managing the Health Industry Workforce Advisor program.

What is an Industry Workforce Advisor?

The aim of the Industry Workforce Advisor program is to provide workforce planning assistance to small to medium employers enabling them to address workforce challenges, diversify their workforces, and support workforce growth.

Maximising workforce participation enables employers to draw on a larger talent pool, ensuring all Queenslanders have access to employment opportunities, particularly people who have previously been underrepresented in the workplace.

CheckUP’s Industry Workforce Advisors will work directly with employers to:

  • Create an individual workforce plan which identifies and addresses workforce challenges
  • Access funded HR support/solutions for their business
  • Diversify and support workforce growth
  • Assist in developing recruitment strategies
  • Access accredited and non-accredited industry training
  • Develop plans to assist with workforce attraction and retention
  • Connect with relevant programs and funding, industry-based initiatives and grant funding, and Australian Government wage subsidies and employer incentives.
