If you are in a business looking to hire or would just like some recruitment techniques, Northern Tasmanian Development Corporation (NTDC) is hosting a series of free events designed to empower people to seek employment locally and to retain and attract people to regional areas.

The seminars, held around the region from mid-March, will cover:

  • Job search methods
  • The importance of developing and maintaining a network of contacts
  • Personal experience of looking for local employment – what works and what doesn’t
  • Skills transfer from one industry to another

NTDC chief executive Mark Baker said these seminars were an excellent way of learning skills to help job seekers succeed in Northern Tasmania. “NTDC’s main goal is to drive economic growth and the best way to do that is to have as many people in gainful employment as possible,” Mr Baker said.

“We know that working provides people with a sense of pride, achievement and identity. It also improves people’s physical and mental well-being and provides social support through a community network.”

NTDC’s Population Program Manager Edward Obi said there was a dire need for locals to be competitive in order to land desired jobs. “These presentations will afford them the necessary information to acquire that competitiveness,” he said.

The seminars will hear from recent job seekers their experiences and from businesses on what they are looking for from potential employees.

StGiles will be attending the West Tamar seminar while Anglicare with address the George Town and Launceston sessions and are actively recruiting.

All seminars are free and refreshments will be provided.
