NO wonder more jobseekers in the Bundaberg region are choosing IMPACT Community Services to help them find work.

The Australian Government’s Department of Employment, Skills, Family and Small Business has just released its latest quarterly jobactive star ratings for each provider and there was plenty of good news for IMPACT.

Our Bundaberg service scored a four-star rating – among the highest in the region - while our Childers office was a five out of five.

jobactive is the government’s employment service to help Australians into work and employers find the right staff. There are several providers in the Bundaberg region.

IMPACT’s Employment and Training General Manager Paea Ruka said the result gave local jobseekers confidence in choosing IMPACT.

“This shows all jobseekers that we know what we’re doing and can provide the guidance and the support they need for the modern-day workforce,” Ms Ruka said.

She paid tribute to IMPACT’s team of talented jobactive staff who work tirelessly to deliver positive workplace outcomes.

“We’ve got an experienced team that is second to none,” Ms Ruka said.

“The team has worked really hard, in what have been challenging times due to the bushfires.  They really know what’s going on in the local labour market and have built trusting relationships with employers.

"Through jobactive, we create a personalised plan and connect you to a range of government initiatives to help you find work sooner."
