Vision for jobs growth
SOME of Australia’s best decision-makers met at Mindarie Marina this month to define a clear vision for job growth in City of Wanneroo.
The Job Summit attracted 150 forward thinkers from government, education and industry to discuss how to create sustainable employment opportunities to support the City’s current economic state and rapidly growing region.
Opened by Mayor Tracey Roberts, the summit focused on unemployment rates, education levels and workforce trends within the City.
City chief executive Daniel Simms said by harnessing the knowledge at the summit, Wanneroo could identify current and future transformational opportunities.
“This Jobs Summit is all about realising the opportunities and challenges which de- fine the City’s unique point of difference that will attract developers, investors and entrepreneurs to build and work in the City,” he said.
“By optimising land use and analysing the potential for job opportunities in upcoming infrastructure development, we can look to reach our 100,000 jobs target while creating vibrant, prosperous and progressive communities.”
