Project background

Jobs Queensland is committed to developing place-based approaches where industry, at a local level and supported by government, are equipped with the right tools and capacities to develop innovative employment and job creation strategies.

Critically and also practically, partnerships developed using place-based approaches can connect local leaders, businesses and industry.

At a local level, this connectivity leverages local resources, expertise and knowledge to develop shared local responses to workforce structural adjustment, local economic development and productivity.
