ETC has expanded its operations, officially opening a new office in Tweed Heads yesterday.
ETC CEO Jenny Barnett said ETC was excited to be offering employment services in the Tweed.
“ETC has been helping businesses in NSW grow for the past 26 years and we ourselves are excited to be expanding our services in 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.”
ETC’s General Manager Training and Business Services Karen Busby said ETC was ramping up its delivery of training programs in the Tweed to benefit the local community.
“As a Registered Training Organisation we work with local businesses to ensure they have appropriately skilled and up-to-date staff,” Ms Busby said.
“ETC offers a range of accredited training courses from Certificate II to Diploma level in the areas of Retail, Hospitality, Business and Community Services.
“We can customise pre-employment training programs to enable employers to gain exposure to a large pool of suitable applicants and test them out in their business before making a final decision.”
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 Tweed Heads office opening.
Ms Hawkins invited local businesses to drop into ETC’s new premises at Suite 8A, 24-28 Corporation Circuit, Tweed Heads South, to meet the ETC team.
“We are here to help people get jobs, provide exceptional service to local employers, train people to further their careers 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.”
