Our Service Area


“I’ve been with Workforce Extensions for 6 months and I have only been out of work for 7 days over that time (if that). They are easy to contact, have great management and skills. Ross normally finds me work ASAP if he can.”

Wayne Violet, Labourer & Traffic Controller

“I found Ross and Sandra and all the team there very understanding to your personal needs, with me being a parent and having an illness. When I do have to take time off they understand and I don’t pressure me and they always call me again. I couldn’t work for a better place and I am extremely thankful to be a part of the Workforce team!”

Kira Hopper, Aged Care Nurse
