Partners & Networks

Organisations that help us to compile and distribute career information are the State and Territory Industry Training Advisory Bodies (ITABS) where these exist, peak industry bodies at national and State/Territory level, and sometimes professional associations.


ITABs are industry-owned not-for-profit organisations, which provide authoritative, independent information on training needs, and promote skills development and the take-up of training within their industries.

They work with industry organisations, enterprises, State and Federal governments and training providers to identify, promote and advocate for relevant, accessible and quality training and to improve training and skills recognition processes.


Peak industry bodies in Australia are association of industries or groups. They are generally established for the purposes of developing standards and processes, or to act on behalf of all members when lobbying government or promoting the interests of the members.

These associations can provide useful information on their industry and emerging trends. Some of their websites also contain career information and job vacancies.

Some of the peak industry bodies and professional associations in the Construction and Property Services industries are listed below. These links are to the national websites which may, in turn, lead to State sites.
