RDACC introduces Pacific Labour Scheme to address critical skill shortages


Regional Development Australia Central Coast (RDACC) is raising awareness about the Australian Government’s newly-introduced Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS), to help address critical shortages in both the hospitality and tourism, and aged care sectors across the Central Coast.

The PLS offers hospitality and tourism and aged care providers in rural and regional Australia an opportunity to connect with low and semi-skilled workers from nine Pacific Island countries – providing a secure and reliable workforce for up to three years.

RDACC Director Regional Development & Chief Executive Officer, John Mouland, said the Scheme addresses significant skills shortages in these critical sectors.

“Over the past few years, RDACC has witnessed significant skills shortages in both the hospitality and aged care sectors on the Central Coast, and we’re aware many businesses are considering skilled migration to address these shortages,” said Mr Mouland.
