Great Southern Group Training (trading as ATC Work Smart) is an incorporated not-for-profit community based organisation that began group training operations in November 1987 when a group of businessmen in Albany, Western Australia saw the need for the creation of additional training opportunities for the youth of the region.
GSGT began operating a recruitment & labour hire division in November 1998 as an additional source of income to allow for the development and implementation of initiatives that could enhance the employment and training opportunities for Apprentices and Trainees.
In 2007 all the business activities of GSGT began trading as ATC Work Smart to capitalise on marketing opportunities and improve efficiency.
ATC Work Smart provides a labour hire, recruitment, selection, training and administrative support service to industry in the Great Southern, Esperance Goldfields and Southwest region (based in Bunbury). Our Head Office is located in the Albany CBD.
Our primary role is to create employment opportunities for apprentices and trainees and provide businesses with the opportunity to have access to apprentices and trainees without many of the employment and training related hassles.
Apprentices and Trainees are employed by ATC Work Smart and then hired to host employers on an hourly fee for hire basis. Rates are calculated to include all on-costs such as wages, leave loading, workers compensation, and superannuation etc.
ATC Work Smart is governed by a voluntary Board of Management and is a member of the association of Group Training Australia.
