Supporting the Fitness, Sport and Recreation Industry in Queensland

DESBT – Industry Workforce Advisor

The State Government has committed to increasing the size, skills, and adaptability of the state’s workforce through the Workforce Strategy.  As part of the Strategy, DESBT has funded a number of Industry Workforce Advisors to assist small and medium businesses with workforce planning, enabling them to address workforce challenges, diversify their workforces, and support workforce growth. This may include identifying recruitment strategies to expand applicant pools and considering underrepresented groups.
