Vi­sion for jobs growth

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

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.”
