Health Workforce Programs

Industry Workforce Advisors

The Industry Workforce Advisor program supports small and medium businesses to address workforce challenges, diversify their workforces, and support workforce and productivity growth.

CheckUP serves as the Industry Workforce Advisor organisation for the following sectors:

  • Community services
  • First Nations healthcare and social assistance
  • Health

Established as part of the Good People, Good Jobs – Queensland Workforce Strategy, the program enables our Industry Workforce Advisors to provide free, tailored workforce planning assistance to Queensland businesses in these sectors.

CheckUP’s Industry Workforce Advisors can work directly with your business to:

  • identify workforce challenges, develop a workforce plan and suggest options to address the challenges including accessing grants and incentives
  • refer your business to funding available under the Workforce Connect Fund for new and innovative HR solutions
  • assist in development of strategies to recruit and attract people, including from diverse cohorts, and other potential labour supply, such as skilled migration
  • connect you with the department’s programs including grants and initiatives, the Business Queensland website and available Australian Government programs and incentives.
