The ACT Government is working to ensure the economic survival of the ACT and surrounding regions through a comprehensive economic response to the COVID 19 pandemic.

As we increase capacity in our health system, we need to keep our city going.

To do this, we need to work together with Canberrans to create job opportunities for those that need it and support local businesses through this difficult time.

The Jobs for Canberrans Fund will provide work opportunities for people in the casual or semi-skilled workforce who have lost their jobs or have been significantly impacted due to COVID-19.

Jobs will be available for people who have relied on casual work and are not eligible for the Australian Government’s wage subsidy scheme or other support.

A high number of registrations have been received since the program was announced.

Registration is still open, so please sign up if you are eligible.

We will be working hard to process applications over the coming days and weeks.

If you have already registered you will continue to receive notifications as new jobs become available.

More on eligibility and how to apply can be found on the Jobs for Canberrans webpage.
