Assistance for Queensland Nickel Workers

Wednesday 20 January 2016

The Government today announced it will immediately provide $500,000 for career transitioning assistance to support Queensland Nickel employees who have lost their jobs as a result of the company’s recent decisions.

This assistance will help affected workers who have a letter of redundancy by providing intensive career transitioning services through the Government’s jobactive employment programme, helping them get back in the workforce as quickly as possible.

The workers will also have access to the “What’s Next” website, which provides a range of information and self-help resources to help retrenched workers get on a pathway to new employment promptly.

A fact sheet about the assistance available to workers is also available.
