THE Buderoo Employment and Training organisation in Rockhampton will close its doors on Friday due to financial issues.

The 3-star Job Services Australia (JSA) Indigenous specialist provider has requested to terminate their contract with the Federal Government's Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) after 12 years of service to the Capricornia region.

A DEEWR spokeswoman said Buderoo management had raised financial concerns previously.

"The organisation is almost entirely reliant on Government funding," she said.

"In the past, DEEWR has actively assisted this provider through access to other sources of funding designed to identify and address ongoing financial issues. However, these options are currently limited and the provider has advised it cannot continue trading."

From next week, specialist Indigenous JSA services will be provided through two other Job Services Australia providers currently operating in the Capricornia region.

Job seekers affected by Buderoo's decision to close will be contacted by their new Specialist JSA provider from early next week to arrange an appointment.
