Council’s Jobs Expo, in partnership with the Central West Careers Advisers Association and sponsored by TAFE NSW, is on next Tuesday 21 August at BMEC from 9.00am to 3.00pm.
More than fifty exhibitors will be there providing information on job opportunities, education options and assistance with career change or development.
Attendees will have the opportunity to have hands-on experiences with interactive displays, virtual reality and live demonstrations. There will also be motivational seminars to provide advice on career development.
This popular event supports our local businesses and we can continue to provide an ongoing benefit to the wider community through job growth and enhancing the local economy.
Each year Council supports a variety of community organisations with funding through Section 356 Donations.
The funding assists them with their initiatives, daily operations and running community events. This year eighteen local organisations were awarded funding. One of the recipients was the Hill End and Tambaroora Gathering Group, which received funds to assist with the cost of printing and postage of their twice yearly newsletter. The group consists of people who have a close connection to the area through their pioneer and mining ancestors as well as those who have an interest in Hill End and Tambaroora.
