The Canberra Times brings word that even with rising unemployment the ACT’s employers aren’t happy.
It seems the idea that they might have to provide training for the skills they desire is all just too hard.
- In hospitality, owner of Canberra restaurant Ottoman, Gulbahar Kaya, has struggled to recruit apprentice chefs for three months. Floor staff could also not be found. ”We’re not experiencing anyone begging for a job here,” Ms Kaya said.
”We advertise but we don’t get the kind of people we’re looking for. They haven’t got any relevant training. And very few apply in the first place.”
Maybe the pay and conditions just isn’t very attractive to the people who’ve got the training? Just a thought.
