POPULAR ‘CAREER AND TRY-A-TRADE EXPO’ TO RETURN DURING 2018
The annual ‘Career and Try-A-Trade Expo’ is to return with a bang. This year’s event is to be held at Wanangkura Stadium, on Friday 15 June 2018 from 9.00am-3.30pm.
Traditionally, the ‘Career and Try-A-Trade Expo’ has been a wonderful way to showcase to local High School students and community members the diverse array of local employment opportunities available.
This year, EPIC as well as members of the Hedland Collective, have joined forces with Bloodwood Tree to assist in the planning the event. Two months to go and already, the event looks to be bigger and better than ever.
Over 650 visitors attended last year. There were 23 different stallholders in attendance from education institutions, recruitment agencies, local businesses and industry. They included: Compass Group, ISS, Roy Hill,YMCA Mirnutharntu Maya, YMCA Aquatics, Gravity Cranes, Goodline, TOPH, WA Police, Wirraka Maya, Pilbara Regiment,YIC, MCS Security, BHP, Mission Australia and St John Ambulance.
Organisers are grouping trades together this year. Plus, there will be a broader array of locally available trades in addition to representatives from local employment sectors like community services, Government, military and healthcare.
Given the popularity of adult apprenticeships, adult traineeships, the constant need to re-train, and importantly, the societal change away from ‘jobs for life,’ the ‘Career and TryA-Trade Expo’ is a great way to inform all community members what is locally available and to help all members of our community with their career journey into the future.
