The recent announcement of the retrenchment of 14,000 Qld public service employees will mean that 1,000’s of people are likely to be looking for new jobs over the coming months.
The 14,000 job cuts announced in the Qld State Budget is made up of 10,600 redundancies and another 3400 in axed temporary contract workers and vacant positions.
Qld Public Servants Re-training?
Queensland Premier Campbell Newman has said that employees deemed to be surplus to requirements will have a choice about whether to be redeployed to another position or to take a generous voluntary redundancy payout.
It expected that those public sector employees being made redundant will receive counseling, retraining and support in being redeployed (or finding new jobs), but many accepting redundancy packages may largely be left on their own.
