Women key to skills so­lu­tion

The Advertiser - Careers - - Job Focus -

IN­CREAS­ING the par­tic­i­pa­tion of women in the gas en­ergy sec­tor is a ma­jor fo­cus for it to over­come a crit­i­cal skills short­age.

Gas En­ergy Aus­tralia chief ex­ec­u­tive Michael Car­mody says the gas in­dus­try is not just about min­ing and does not have to in­volve em­ploy­ees re­lo­cat­ing to a re­mote area.

He en­cour­ages fe­male school leavers in par­tic­u­lar to con­sider it as a ca­reer, as their un­der­stand­ing of tech­nol­ogy is in de­mand by em­ploy­ers.
