Australia takes the next step towards net-zero emissions after the Federal and South Australian governments signed a $1 billion deal.


South Australians can look forward to reduced energy costs in the future after the Federal and South Australian governments signed a $1 billion State Energy and Emissions Reduction Deal.

The deal aims to generate secure, reliable and affordable energy for South Australians and help the nation achieve its emissions reduction targets. As a result, South Australians will benefit from reduced energy bills and have access to more job opportunities.

As part of the agreement, the Federal government will provide $660 million and the South Australian government will provide $422 million.

Focuses of the deal include:

  • an increased supply of reliable and affordable gas

  • $400 million worth of funding for priority areas including carbon capture and storage, electric vehicles, hydrogen and other emission reduction projects

  • $110 million worth of concessional finance for solar thermal and other storage projects

  • $100 million of funding to support Project EnergyConnect which aims to improve energy flow between South Australia and New South Wales


Supporting these projects by supporting our people

Our consultants will support job applicants through the recruiting process to ensure they have the best chance of landing the role. Candidates will only be put forward for jobs that they are suitable for. This way, candidates can be sure that they are capable of the responsibilities they will have on the job.

Because we work closely and exclusively with many of our clients, new job opportunities often come straight to us before going to the public. Some roles are snatched up by our candidates before the role has even been listed on an online job board, such as SEEK or Indeed. This means candidates we work with have the upper hand and more job opportunities than others.

Candidates will have a chance to discuss what the prospective employer is looking for so they can be ready for each interview that comes their way.

Having a recruiter vouch for you can give you the advantage when going up against other candidates who are going for the same role.
