Why Land Works?
After two years successfully delivering Green Army in NSW and QLD, Skillset knows there is a strong demand for outdoor work crews to complete important projects for local governments, natural resource-related companies and agencies, and private landholders, particularly in regional Australia. We are also committed to providing careers for our Green Army graduates who are job-ready at the end of the program. Land Works is the model that brings these together.
