The Regional Development Australia, Far South Coast Committee has released the 2016 Regional Skills Audit of the NSW Far South Coast.
The report identified significant job opportunities across multiple industry sectors.
Federal Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis said the audit helped to identify perfect opportunity for our current and up and coming workforce to undertake training with the prospect of securing a paid job.
“With the delivery of our $20 million jobs package, this is an exciting time for Gilmore,” she said.
“It was only last week I announced the NSW South Coast Jobs and Investment Packages (RJIP) Local Planning Committee.”
From the audit, business’s where asked to indicate if they experienced any critical skills shortages, these included - Carpenters, Veterinarian Surgeons, Truck Drivers, Social Media Managers, Civil Engineers, Event Managers, Marketers, Auto Electricians, and Financial Specialists.
“I’m aware there are already business’s waiting to come to Gilmore, to grow and employ more people.
“The Coalition Government’s aim is to create more jobs and export opportunities, to become a working destination of choice that also has a great lifestyle, to encourage both business investment and entrepreneurial projects to move here and employ more people,” Ms Sudmalis said.
Funding may be available across three streams: Skills and Training, Local Infrastructure, and Business Innovation. The Regional Jobs and Investment package will be open for submissions later in the year.
