Employment services organisation The Personnel Group opened its revamped Wagga office on Monday, featuring a new space to engage young job seekers.
Riverina MP Michael McCormack cut the ribbon on the new youth space.
“We don’t want people slipping through the cracks … transitioning people into work is absolutely vital,” he said.
Group chief executive Tracey Fraser said the new youth space in the Fitzmaurice Street office would help engage with young people looking for work or training.
“They have a place that they can use at any time, whether they have an appointment or just want to drop in,” she said.
“We’ll have some learning tools, they can come in and do an online course or just play table tennis or X-Box.”
Ms Fraser said the Riverina was tackling youth unemployment.
“We have had 450 young people through our doors and 170 of them we have got into jobs and the same again into training,” she said.
