Project links regional WA to local jobs and tenders
Regional businesses and job seekers now have easier access to information about State Government jobs and project tenders in the region thanks to a portal link on the Great Southern Development Commission website.
The initiative was launched in Albany by Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan. The Commission’s website now links directly to Tenders WA and Jobs WA opportunities in each region, supporting the State Government’s commitment to increasing economic development and employment across regional WA.
The Tenders WA portal links to State Government projects and programs in each region, allowing businesses to view public sector tenders and awarded contracts in their area. The Commission can also provide support with the tendering process.
The Jobs WA portal provides regional job seekers with a direct link to public sector job opportunities in their communities across a range of sectors including education, health, corrective services and conservation.
Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan described the initiative as timely as it provides a one-stop shop connecting people and industry to local jobs and business opportunities.
“We urgently need to drive more business to regional WA, and these projects are part of this Government’s commitment to promoting economic diversity and jobs growth in our regions,” Minister MacTiernan said.
