The announcement of the inaugural the members of the Ministerial Advisory Board of Jobs and Skills Australia (JSA) is a pivotal moment for the agency responsible for monitoring Australia’s workforce needs.

“We are pleased that ACCI has been endorsed as one of the four employer representatives on the JSA Ministerial Advisory Board,” ACCI chief executive officer Andrew McKellar said.

“This is an important appointment for ACCI as it allows us to represent members by advocating on behalf of the skills needs of employers nationwide.

“JSA is essential to helping to identify our present and future skills and labour needs. We know that the best defence against recurring skills shortages is access to comprehensive data that anticipates our skills needs.”

“We would also like to see the creation of specialist and representative sub-boards to be established for distinct work/priority areas of JSA as required and determined, such as apprenticeships.”

ACCI looks forward to working closely with members of the board and JSA over the coming years to help prevent further skills shortages.
