Options for life after Holden shutdown for supply-chain workers.
It’s a challenging time when the work that supports your family changes, and it is an all-too-real challenge for many South Australian supply-chain workers. Now is the time for all supply-chain workers to be looking at their future options, and the resources available to make the move from their current job to the next phase of their career and life. Support and information from the Department of State Development could be the key to drive your future.
WORKERS IN TRANSITION PROGRAM
Automotive supply-chain workers qualify for the Workers in Transition Program.
Once registered with the program, access to $2500 is available to support career-planning activities along with a wide range of support services and assistance. Support can include career advice, transition services, skills recognition and training.
If you’re moving into another job, a transition plan and access support is available.
Eligible partners or spouses can also register for assistance.
Other workers may choose to start their own business. In which case, the Workers in Transition Program can assist to identify and develop the skills required to operate a small business, access start-up advice, support services and networking programs.
Those considering retiring from the workforce can receive assistance with retirement plans, financial information, advice on working part time or volunteering, and how to manage time and stay active during retirement.
