What we do
Connecting Business and Workers!
Founded in 1994, Tursa Employment & Training is a not-for-profit organisation and its core business is all about work: finding work for people who need work and finding workers for businesses that need workers. TURSA is also a nationally accredited Registered Training Organisation. From 58 offices along the Eastern seaboard from Forster (NSW) to Noosaville (QLD), TURSA connects participants and business with a minimum of fuss and no fees.
Tursa Employment & Training delivers many programmes and services such as:
As a major contracted provider of the Australian Government’s employment service programme jobactive, TURSA helps participants find employment and supports them as they commence work. This ensures the participant has the best chance to retain the job and thrive in their new role.
TURSA assists employers to find suitable workers for their business through screening resumes, shortlisting and referring candidates, as well as providing wage subsidies where appropriate. TURSA also provides traineeship incentives and after-placement support for both the employer and the worker as well as other assistance.
Work For The Dole
Work for the Dole formulates part of jobactive. It is a mandatory Australian Government work experience programme which places participants in activities where they can build new skills, experience and confidence to move from welfare to work while giving back to their community.
Work for the Dole activities can be hosted by not-for-profit organisations/charities, or local, state, or Australian Government organisations or agencies. During Work for the Dole, participants undertake work-like activities at a host organisation or as part of a community-based project.
