Free help is available at our Career Development Centres – for underemployed and unemployed people, those facing redundancy or retrenchment, school leavers, people looking to return to the workforce, or those seeking a career change.
Our region is ripe with employment opportunities across diverse industries, job types and skill levels. The region’s largest employing industries include primary production and value-added processing, health and community services, and tourism. We also have a strong manufacturing and retail sector.
Emerging industries include transport, distribution and warehousing, manufacturing, environmental business, water resource management and re-use, mining, and intensive animal keeping. Transport activities are linked to the focus on warehousing and distribution of wholesale goods, which is gaining in local economic momentum and paralleling South Australian and interstate initiatives and developments. Environmental business is a strong growth sector of the wider tourism industry. Water resources management has achieved national recognition and under-pins many other state-wide business activities.
There is room for you to work in your chosen career, take up a new career path, or build a business of your own. Whether you need some new skills, connections with local employers, or start-up advice, we are here to help.
