There are not many better ways to make a difference in someone’s life, than to offer them employment.

The health, social and psychological benefits of work are well documented.

As an employer, you have the power to make a difference in your local community by considering diversity when looking for staff.

Hiring a diverse, local workforce contributes positively to the local economy, both socially and economically.

The good news is that there is a large range of Government programs out there to support you.

Cessnock City Council’s economic development team have partnered with Training Service NSW to bring to you an event to find out more about how to recruit staff.

The Recruitment and Industry Advice evening is being held on Wednesday 24 February from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Cessnock Leagues Club.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Create a pipeline for recruitment – schools
  • Traineeships and Apprenticeships
  • Fee free short courses and qualifications
  • Employment incentives
  • Ongoing support
  • Local jobs program – meet your new Employment Facilitator
  • How employment services can assist you

Registration is essential and can be done so here: Recruitment and Industry Advice Event.

If you are unable to attend the event, Advance Cessnock City’s Jobs Portal has compiled a list of useful resources, information and some general guidance to assist you with the recruitment process.
