Australia’s Employment Services from 2020 – a Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow or What?
David Thompson, CEO of Jobs Australia will be joining us at this year’s National Employment Solutions Conference, presenting “Australia’s employment services from 2020 – a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow or what?”.
Over the next 18 months or so big decisions will be made about the shape of Australia’s public employment service to operate from July 2020.
The possibilities are almost endless – a pot of gold for 1.2 million unemployed Australian citizens or just another pile of dirt?
David will give his best shot at framing that pot of gold.
David Thompson is CEO of Jobs Australia Limited, the national peak organisation for more than 200 non-profit providers of employment and related services for unemployed people. David has a keen interest in social justice and equity issues.
David is also Director of the National Roundtable of Nonprofit Organisations Limited, Chair, Jobs Australia Foundation, Chair, COMMACT International and Director of its Australian Chapter, Chair of Community 21 Limited, and Chair of Community Sector Enterprises Pty Ltd.
