Collage of images from cover page of employment strategyThe Territory is entering an exciting period of growth and 20 000 new jobs are expected over the next five years. It’s important that we work together to ensure a skilled and dynamic Territory workforce and make the most of new opportunities.

The Territory Government is continuing its focus on jobs for Territorians.

Employment Strategy 2012-2015 outlines the priorities and targets that will help Territorians gear up for growth and maximise their opportunities.

Employment Strategy 2012-2015

Employment Strategy background

The Employment Strategy 2012-2015 follows on from the successful Jobs NT 2010-2012 employment strategy.

The Territory Government undertook a discussion period to give Territorians the opportunity to have their say on what the 2012-2015 strategy should focus on. Discussions were targeted at five key areas:

  1. workforce planning and development
  2. skilling the workforce
  3. Indigenous employment participation
  4. migration
  5. business and industry support.

The feedback received helped form the Employment Strategy 2012-2015.
