Since the pilot program launch in November 2014, the Sydney Metro Pre-employment Program has helped
long term unemployed people find jobs on major transport infrastructure projects. The program aims to
provide tailored training and personal development for disadvantaged people, instilling confidence and
providing employment opportunities. The design of the program also aims to break down the potential stigma
of employers hiring Job Service candidates by involving employers in the training and mentoring process. This
has the added advantage of providing targeted training for candidates to address company skill shortages.
