To encourage Australian businesses to create opportunities for job seekers, MIGAS have launched the 100JOBS campaign to place 100 apprentices, trainees and labour hire staff.

MIGAS State Manager, Natasha Hughes, said the media campaign’s message is centered on creating opportunities for and securing Australia’s skilled future.

"MIGAS have launched the 100JOBS campaign to urge local and national businesses to give an apprentice or trainee the qualifications to secure a position in the workforce and ensure there are skilled tradespeople in their industry for years to come," Ms Hughes said.

Inspired by the success of the 50in50 initiative in 2013, the 100JOBS campaign aims to place 100 job seekers with specific targets allocated to different regions across the country.

The 100JOBS campaign aims to highlight the importance of encouraging young people to consider apprenticeships and traineeships as a diverse career path, and to educate them on the opportunities available to them to gain qualifications and work within the Australian industry sector.

The campaign began on December 1 last year and will run until February 28 this year.

MIGAS recruits and employs Australian apprentices, trainees and school-based trainees as well as facilitating labour hire placements for companies in all industries across Australia, with a strong focus on traditional trades.
