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.

Spots for stalls at this pop­u­lar event fill fast. To se­cure your free stall site at the ‘2018 Ca­reer and Try-A-Trade Expo,’ please con­tact Blood­wood Tree on 9138 3000 or email: re­cep­tion@blood­woodtree.org.au
