Jobs Australia is sponsoring the John Hartley Fellowship in honour and recognition of John’s significant contribution to provision of services to assist unemployed people living in regional areas of eastern Victoria and southern NSW to get jobs.
This was a role John fulfilled as CEO and leader of Workways Australia, a not-for-profit organisation based in Bairnsdale, until his untimely passing from illness in 2013.
John was a highly regarded member of the Board of Directors of Jobs Australia.
This new Fellowship to investigate employment services and welfare issues affecting unemployed people in regional Australia was offered nationally in 2017.
Preference will be given to applicants from a not-for-profit organisation and a regional location.
