Major Projects Skills Guarantee

The Victorian Government’s Major Projects Skills Guarantee (MPSG) provides opportunities for Victorian apprentices, trainees and cadets to work on some of the biggest building and infrastructure projects. The MPSG mandates that a minimum of 10% of the workforce for all publicly funded major projects valued at more than $20 million includes apprentices and trainees.

Skillinvest can ensure your business meets the minimum MPSG requirements by helping to quickly source and provide skilled and enthusiastic apprentices and trainees for your project.

Diversity

Skillinvest is committed to creating workplaces that are fair and inclusive and aims to build a workforce which reflects the diversity of the local community. We have experience in seeking employment opportunities for Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) groups that can often be under-represented in our workforce. These include: Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people; people with a disability; members of racial, ethnic and ethno-religious minority groups; young people under 25; women in senior leadership roles and other dimensions of diversity including age diversity, carer/family responsibilities, sexual orientation and socio-economic background.
