Company Overview

From its humble beginnings in 1992 as a training provider in Albany, to today being up to 20 locations across Western Australia and South Australia, Skill Hire is a company that’s always done things a bit differently.

Whilst the focus has always been on creating opportunities for the local community, the entrepreneurial spirit that united the three original founders, has been a constant driving force consistently expanding the company into new areas and new services.

Where others have stopped at one thing or one place, at Skill Hire, we’ve always had a desire to keep going to uncover new ways of doing things, and new ways of helping.

Over time, we’ve recognised a need in the market for a more comprehensive and complete service provider, so we’ve broadened our offering to include expertise and experience across training, staffing, and employment, with each area complementing the others and contributing to an interlinked process that makes it as easy as possible for the people we work with.

Today, with 150 staff across our metropolitan and regional branches and a daily workforce in excess of 1000, we remain committed to meeting the needs of individuals, the corporate sector, and the broader community, in a way that allows them to get on with doing what they do best.

To put it simply, our mission at Skill Hire is to make the world around us a better place to live and work. Through our training, staffing and employment services, we’re passionate about creating opportunities and delivering outcomes that lead to better people, better businesses, and ultimately better communities.

  • All students enjoyed their time at Skill Hire very much. Students were excited to see the end result, but were just as excited to demolish it!

  • Working with Skill Hire was an absolute joy! Our students enjoyed an unsurpassed opportunity to learn and develop skills that supported their career aspirations. Trainer, Wayne Sutherland managed a full team of 15 students with ease and aplomb! The opportunity to engage with on-site works meant that our students have now had a real experience of these trades and feel more confident in their ability to succeed. A few students are keen to continue their trade studies with Skillhire and we wish them all the very best. Thankyou so much for the opportunity to take part in Try-A-Trade and SOP

  • Students from Kalamunda participated in the Try-A-Trade at Skill Hire. They were excited to have the opportunity to experience a work place where they were supported to gain knowledge as well as work in a collegiate atmosphere. It was a great learning experience.
