The Jobs and Skills Exchange (JSE) has been transferred to the Victorian Public Sector Commission (VPSC) as of this month (1 December), as a Machinery of Government change.
Victorian Public Sector Commissioner, Adam Fennessy welcomed the move saying the JSE had made a vital contribution to the Victorian Public Service.
The Budget allocated $8.97 million to the JSE over two years.
“Since its establishment in July 2019, the Jobs and Skills Exchange has played an important role in ensuring the VPS workforce is ready to deliver when Victorians need it most,” Mr Fennessy said.
“It has done this through the design and implementation of new approaches to workforce mobility,” he said.
“Importantly, the Jobs and Skills Exchange offers our employees career opportunity, skill development and supports flexible working and diversity in our workplaces.”
Mr Fennessy said the VPSC and the JSE had a strong strategic alignment.
“We work closely on career and capability initiatives, and by working together in a more integrated and coordinated way we can offer greater benefit to the VPS,” he said.
“I am committed to the continued success of the JSE and energised by the possibilities for its next phase of growth,” he said.
Mr Fennessy said the JSE transferred as a complete business unit and operated uninterrupted during the transition.
