Over 1,000 workers have been made redundant due to the closure of a Holden plant in Adelaide, which triggered a job expo hosted by the Holden Job Centre for positions available in regional Victoria.
One particular logistics company, Porthhaul, have offered 50 truck driving positions and various other roles for ex-Holden employees to be filled urgently.
Holden who plan to shut down manufacturing completely by the end of 2017, are funding $15 million dollars towards the Australian Government established Growth Fund to provide support to ex-Holden employees as they transition into new jobs.
