VERTO and National Seniors Australia have entered into this strategic agreement in order to promote the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales and Victoria.

VERTO’s chief executive, Ron Maxwell, said VERTO was proud to work with such a respected member based organisation like National Seniors Australia.

“National Seniors Australia has an excellent reputation as a strong voice for older Australians,” Mr. Maxwell said.

“Their advocacy and research have helped to improve the lives of many older Australians, and we look forward to working together to help those aged 45 to 70 who may be at risk of unemployment to continue in the workforce.”

National Seniors Australia’s General Manager, Chris Grice, said initiatives such as the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program are more important now than ever.
