Investing in the Future of Local Industry
What is Smart, Skilled & Hired?
Smart, Skilled and Hired is a Youth Employment Program that assists young people to overcome barriers to employment and gain skills and experience that will improve their long-term job and socio-economic prospects.
CHESS will work closely with local employers to understand what employment opportunities and skills gaps exist, ensuring young people who participate in the program are job ready with the right skills. CHESS takes a hands on approach and will be available to guide our young people through at least the first six months of their employment so business owners can be assured they will have the very best on-the-job support for their new staff.
Who is Eligible?
The program will be open to employers in Western Sydney, the Central Coast and Hunter, New England/North West and the North Coast.
Employers who are interested in providing employment opportunities to young people are encouraged to register their interest with us by filling in the form below:
