Metro Tunnel’s Jobs Hub
Posted: 12 Sep 2018
Thousands of Victorian jobs seekers can train and upskill thanks to the launch of MetroHub – a one-stop-shop for construction jobs and training on St Kilda Road, near the future Anzac Station.
MetroHub is a partnership between Cross Yarra Partnership and Holmesglen Institute, based at the TAFE’s Southbank campus. It has an emphasis on opportunities for priority job seekers through partners like Holmesglen’s Skills and Jobs Centre, Whitelion, CareerSeekers and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
People seeking a job on the project from early 2019 will be able to drop into MetroHub and register their interest.
The Tunnels and Stations package will create 5,000 jobs, including providing a start for 500 apprentices, trainees and engineering cadets, who will study and train at MetroHub in programs designed for young people looking for a career in construction.
Cross Yarra Partnership – a consortium led by Lendlease, John Holland and Bouygues Construction – will support training of thousands of workers over the next seven years. The MetroHub will help young Victorians enter the workforce and kick-start their careers in the construction and rail industry.
