The Problem

A Stronger Future

The Toowoomba region has unique challenges in relation to our unemployment rates and skills shortages that need to be addressed so our communities can thrive.

Many businesses throughout the Toowoomba region are currently frustrated with being unable to attract job applicants with the desired skills and experience.

At the same time, local unemployed and underemployed people are reporting a lack of quality jobs available to them in the region. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Toowoomba jobs landscape substantially.

Through the development of the Toowoomba Workforce Strategy, the Toowoomba Regional Jobs Committee is working towards addressing the unique challenges in the region, to ensure a stronger future for Toowoomba. 

Employ Toowoomba’s aim is to drive employment growth in the region and plan for the future by developing strategies that address local workforce and skills issues, plus identify new opportunities.

Our efforts will focus on initiatives that:

  • Train the right people for the right jobs
  • Help workers take advantage of new opportunities
  • Help to lower unemployment levels in youth, migrants, and those with a disability
  • Help businesses to plan for their future workforce needs
  • Keep people in Toowoomba
  • Attract people to Toowoomba
