As part of its reengagement strategy with clients, Central Desert Regional Council (CDRC) Community Development Program (CDP) was on the road to deliver its Careers Expo. Over 13 and 14 July, three teams crisscrossed the region with a single objective: to bring together job seekers and employers in the region.
The themes of this year’s event were:
· Continuing conversations with job seekers on the latest changes to mutual obligations by Government.
· Surveying job seekers to capture their input on CDP servicing.
· Providing a pop-up jobs expo space for employers in the region to exhibit jobs and services to clients.
A total of 18 employers including Council and one registered training organisation (RTO) were invited to exhibit their jobs and services. Over the two days more than one hundred participants and community members attended pop-up stands where they spoke to the CDP teams and the employers’ representatives.
The expo will remain as an item on the CDP calendar, with the next event to be hosted at the start of next year.
