Digital Jobs program

We can help you find great people with the right digital skills for your business.

Digital Jobs program

The Victorian Government’s $64 million Digital Jobs program is creating a new pipeline of talent to meet the digital skills needs of Victorian employers.

Over the next three years, the program aims to produce up to 5,000 job-ready candidates with up-to-date digital skills that will help Victorian businesses thrive. Digital Jobs takes capable, experienced mid-career workers looking for a career change and helps them become web developers, data analysts, digital marketers and more.

Each job-ready candidate is freshly trained in a digital skillset that’s in high demand. Training courses are industry backed and delivered by leading digital skills course providers.

Victorian employers can gain access to this new talent pool at a subsidised rate, through internships facilitated by the Digital Jobs program.

New skills for your business

The pool will include candidates recently retrained in:

  • Data analytics
  • Programming/software development
  • Cyber security
  • Cloud computing
  • AI/machine learning
  • User experience/user interface
  • Product management
  • Web development
  • Digital marketing, operations, support
  • Project (agile) management
Build your digital capability

Join the program as an employer to receive:

  • A full-time intern for 12 weeks who has up-to-date digital skills and is ready to undertake a digital-related role or project
  • A subsidy of $5,000 per internship to support employment of the intern(s)
  • Access to a talent pool of productive, motivated potential interns who could be candidates for ongoing employment

 

In the final question of the application, be sure to select Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry as your referrer.

How does it work?

Eligible businesses and organisations can apply to host one or more interns for a minimum of 12 weeks. Once registered, your business will be matched with candidates with the training, skills and background that fit the role(s) you’re looking to fill. You then employ your preferred candidate(s) for a minimum 12 weeks, paying at least minimum wage, while receiving a $5,000 subsidy from the program. There are no obligations beyond that period.

Who are the candidates?

Candidates are competitively selected through Hudson Australia. They are mid-career Victorians from a diverse range of industries and backgrounds,with a demonstrated enthusiasm for pursuing a digital career. Candidates must be over 30 or have at least 10 years’ work experience.

Why mid-career?

With digital skills shortages across the economy, re-trained mid-career workers represent a new potential source of digital talent. Mid-career candidates have transferrable skills and soft skills that are valuable to employers, and position them for a faster trajectory than other entry-level candidates, such as graduates.

What roles can candidates fill?

From a technical perspective, candidates are best suited to entry-level positions, as their technical knowledge will in most cases be foundational.

The types of careers that candidates will be aspiring to include data analysts, network technicians, cyber security officers, cloud administrators, software developers, product designers, web designers, marketers, product managers and quality officers.
