WE DID IT!!!! 1098 Jobs in 100 Days!
The North Coast Grand Employment Challenge
August 1 - November 8 - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
NORTEC have successfully completed our annual campaign and have placed 1098 Northern NSW jobseekers into sustainable employment. We're proud of our efforts in Creating Opportunities and Inspiring Futures for our Northern NSW community members.
As part of the campaign three employers who lodged their vacancies during the 100 days were drawn as winners of $1000 for the charity of their choice. These employers were:
- Rapid Clean in Coffs Harbour (who have chosen to donat $500 to Care Australia for the Phillipines appeal and $500 to the Westpac Helicopter Service)
- Creative 2000 Blinds and Awnings in Lismore (who are yet to decide on their charity of choice)
- Best Friends Pet Care Centre in South Tweed Heads (also yet to decide).
We'd like to thank these businesses and all the local employers who lodged their job vacancy with us during the campaign.
Of course it's business as usual at NORTEC! It costs nothing to lodge your job vacancy with NORTEC and we search our extensive databases for the right candidate for your business. You can Lodge Online or by calling your local office on 1800 667 832.
