Mature-age employment services
CoAct’s national partnership of for-purpose Service Partners can help mature-age workers all around Australia to re-enter the job market after an extended period of time away, connect with age-friendly employers or to change careers.
Our 8-week program is customised to assist people over 45 to transition back into the workforce, whether that be in a new career pathway or refocussing their job search to align with opportunities available in the local labour market. This service is available in Bendigo (VIC), Capital Region (ACT), Goulburn-Murray (VIC), Illawarra South Coast (NSW), Mid North Coast (NSW) and the Murray Riverina (NSW).
At CoAct, we understand that re-entering the workforce or changing careers can be a daunting prospect, especially for Australia’s older job seekers. Rest assured that there are plenty of mature-aged workers who face apprehension when they think of a market that has changed significantly since they first found a job – and that’s where we can help!
CoAct and our local Service Partners engage with mature-age job seekers, age-friendly employers and the community at large.
Mature-age employment is defined as employment over the age of 50 years. And as a mature-age job seeker, you have a lifetime of skills and experience to offer the workforce.
Employers are often impressed by the life experience you bring to their organisation as a mature-age worker, not to mention:
- Strong work ethic
- Mentoring skills
When you register with CoAct, we’ll help you overcome any barriers you have to finding work, from being made redundant to simply being out of the workforce for a while.
We’re committed to helping you build a better future whatever your situation. We also have expertise in helping culturally and linguistically diverse workers, people with disability and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
As a mature-age job seeker, you have plenty of advantages over the rest of the market. Our goal at CoAct is to provide you with all the support you need to find and keep a job.
We’ll work with you to help get you job-ready and make sure we’re with you every step of the way, with support including:
- Job search assistance
- Resume writing
- Access to technology
- Training and upskilling
- Mock interviews
- Dress for success advice and support
- Post-placement support once you start work
