Monday, 21 December 2020

The Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) is one of twelve industry groups announced on 18 December 2020 by Senator the Hon Michaela Cash, Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business that will help co-design new pathways for young people to find employment, as part of a $10 million trial run by the Morrison Government.

The trial will support the design and delivery of tailored pre-employment pathways, using elements of the Government’s Youth Jobs PaTH program, as well as employment services and other support.

“Australian Meat Industry Council continues to lead in getting programs and policies in place to engage, recruit and retain young people within our Australia meat industry,” said AMIC CEO Patrick Hutchinson.

“The PaTH program is part of this and we’re part of a powerful group of associations developing the way forward.”

AMIC and the Department of Education, Skills and Employment have commenced discussions on tailoring a partnership arrangement that will promote and establish employment opportunities for young persons in all sectors of the meat industry.
