Hessel Group Training Organisation (Hessel GTO) makes it simple for businesses to take on trainees. Whether you need to fill a skills gap or meet peak workloads we have enthusiastic trainees ready to learn and excel.

We specialise in managing traineeships for the social care sector including aged care, disability care, home and community living and early childhood education and care. We place Hessel GTO trainees with host employers where they can take their nationally recognised training and skills into the work place while organisations can build their workforce pipeline.

What is a Group Training Organisation?

As a Group Training Organisation (GTO) we employ trainees and place them with organisations on a short or long-term basis. We take care of the employer's contractual and administrative responsibilities including recruitment and provide support with work and training for both the trainee and the host employer.

We help businesses fill skill gaps and trainees to make a successful transition into the workforce commencing a rewarding career.

As partners of Fresh 92.7 FreshJobs we recently talked with breakfast team, Johnny and Davo. Follow the link above to listen how about how the Hessel GTO works with trainees and host employers and subscribe to their newsletter for monthly updates on their project, advice and opportunities.
