ETC has expanded its operations, officially opening a new office in Tuncurry today.
ETC CEO Jenny Barnett said ETC was excited to be offering employment services in the Great Lakes 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 Tuncurry 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 more than 1200 job seekers in the Great Lakes and Manning regions.
“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.
Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead attended the office opening and encouraged local employers to take advantage of the services ETC had to offer.
“I encourage local businesses to utilise the services of jobactive providers such as ETC,” Mr Bromhead said
“They can save employers time and money associated with recruiting staff.
“The best news is, their services are free because they’re subsidised by the Australian Government.”
A smoking ceremony was performed by Jay Currie from Worimi Nation as part of ETC’s Tuncurry office opening.
ETC’s Operations Manager Billy Unsworth 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,” Mr Unsworth
“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.”
Mr Unsworth invited local businesses to drop into ETC’s new premises at “Bridgepoint”, 1-9 Manning Street to meet the ETC team.
“We are here to help people get jobs and provide exceptional service to local employers,” Mr Unsworth said.
