Wyndham City Council will be offering a series of seminars on how to gain employment in local industries, as part of a new set of social and economic inclusion initiatives, which focusses on matching local people with job vacancies.
The next phase of the rollout is Council’s partnering with The Gordon TAFE to host a series of free industry seminars to offer jobseekers insights into several local industries, how they recruit staff, and how you can be in the running for a job in many different industries.
The next of these free events focusses on the Warehouse and Logistics Industry, where jobseekers can gain real insight and understand how to break into the fast-paced warehousing and logistics sector.
Future Focussed Economy Portfolio Holder Cr Walter Villagonzalo said local logistics employers, Oxford Cold Storage, Toll Group, and Complete Office Solutions, would talk about the future of the industry, opportunities for career progression, explain what is needed to get involved in the industry and answer any questions.
“This is an exciting opportunity for anyone considering jumping on board the booming logistics industry and may encourage jobseekers to work towards gaining employment in the area,” Cr Villagonzalo said.
“Jobseekers may not realise that even if their previous job was in a different industry, they may have skills that can be used in other employment areas and this series of workshop will demonstrate how skills can be transferrable as well as learning about the many local employers and work available,” Cr Villagonzalo said.
At the seminar industry leaders will explain what they are looking for in the recruitment process and will offer tips on how resumes and applications can be tailored to fit a job vacancy. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network with other jobseekers and support staff from The Gordon TAFE and employment services sector.
Wyndham residents are invited to Insights into the Warehousing and Logistics industry at Encore Events Centre, Tuesday 22 October, at 10am.
