ETC has expanded its operations, officially opening a new office in Murwillumbah today.
ETC CEO Jenny Barnett said ETC was excited to be offering employment services in the Tweed region.
“ETC has been helping businesses in the NSW Mid North Coast grow for the past 26 years and we ourselves are excited to be expanding into the North Coast and Gold Coast 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 helping more than 700 job seekers in the Tweed region.
“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 Smoking Ceremony, traditional Aboriginal dancing and a Welcome to Country was performed by Luther Cora and the Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers as part of ETC’s Murwillumbah office opening.
ETC’s Operations Manager Rhonda Hawkins said the smoking ceremony 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 Hawkins 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 Hawkins invited local businesses to drop into ETC’s new premises at 2/1 Brisbane Street, Murwillumbah 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,” Ms Hawkins said.
“As a not-for-profit company, ETC is also committed to giving back to local communities and currently has $200,000 available in grant funding as part of the ETC Community Support Fund.”
