Information for Jobseekers

Aquatics and Recreation Victoria (ARV) received funding from the Victorian Government through Jobs Victoria to create 270 jobs with the Victorian Aquatics and Recreation Industry by December 2023.

The Next Wave program provided funding to employers to train, support, employ and retain job seekers.

We partnered with two key employment services providers to ensure Next Wave candidates were supported and prepared for their new Aquatics and Recreation careers.

WCIG and Qualify provided job seekers with support and job-readiness training.
