Backing your business to find great people

Economic Development and Investment – Business Development Officer - Yarra Ranges Shire Council

As digital technologies drive the future of business, the demand for digital skills is growing rapidly.

To help meet this demand, the Victorian Government is building a new talent pool of great people with digital skills.

The Digital Jobs program helps experienced mid-career Victorians transition into digital careers. Candidates undertake 12 weeks of free digital skills training, before being placed in a digital job for 12 weeks.

Victorian businesses are invited to provide work placements for our talented career changers. Participating businesses will also gain access to the broader talent pool to find new recruits for digital jobs.

We’re backing you to build your digital capability, and providing a cost-effective way to bring new skills and new talent into your business.

Join ANZ, Microsoft, Salesforce, Siemens and other top Victorian employers by hosting an intern.

Does your organisation need talented people with digital skills? Hosting a Digital Jobs program participant is a great way to fast-track recruitment for digital roles.

Digital Jobs participants are selected through a competitive three-step process and trained with up-to-date digital skills, backed by industry. Being mid-career participants, they bring a wealth of experience and valuable transferrable skills.

It’s also an opportunity to help Victorians find a new career direction, especially those whose employment may have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Interested in tapping into this new talent pool? We welcome a conversation to discuss the needs of your organisation.

Contact the Digital Jobs team and we’ll be in touch soon.

You can also express your interest or register now to host.
