Gilmore MP Ann Sudmalis says almost 8000 placements have been made under the Job active Employment Program.

Overall unemployment in Gilmore sits on about 7.7 percent but Youth unemployment is still a challenge with the rate currently sitting on 28.9 percent.

Ms Sudmalis says she's working to curb the figure with 117 people entering employability skills training while 658 have found a job.
