ETC has expanded its operations, officially opening a new office in Casino today.
ETC CEO Jenny Barnett said ETC was excited to be offering employment services in the Richmond Valley region.
“ETC has been helping businesses in the Mid North Coast grow for the past 26 years and we ourselves are excited to be expanding into the Richmond Valley through the delivery of the Australian Government’s jobactive program,” Mrs Barnett said.
ETC’s General Manager of Employment Services Damon Munt said ETC was now serving about 500 job seekers in the Richmond Valley.
“We are committed to helping local unemployed people find meaningful and sustainable employment,” Mr Munt said.
“Having the right mix of staff is key to business success and ETC works hard to ensure we fully understand the needs of local employers before recommending suitable candidates to fill their vacancies.
“We take the hassle out of recruitment by providing employers with a shortlist of candidates that meet their specific needs and also assist with the interview process and undertake reference checks.
“The best news is, our recruitment services are subsidised by the government and therefore come at no cost to employers.”
A Welcome to Country was performed by Gwenda Hickling from North Coast Area Health as part of the office opening.
ETC’s Operations Manager Angela Lagos-Jay said a Welcome to Country was an important cultural ritual.
“ETC has a Reconciliation Action Plan and is committed to playing its part in helping end the disparity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians,” Ms Lagos-Jay said.
“Our Reconciliation Action Plan is about building constructive partnerships, promoting Australia’s unique Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander jobs and sustainable economic development.”
Ms Lagos-Jay encouraged local businesses to drop into ETC’s new premises in Casino, located at 132 Walker Street, to meet the ETC team.
“We are here to help people get jobs, provide exceptional service to local employers, and build strong connections with local communities,” she said.
Ms Lagos-Jay said ETC also offered weekly outreach employment services at Kyogle every Tuesday at the Kyogle Workspace.
