Huon Valley Jobs Hub – Call for expressions of interest

The newly formed Huon Valley Jobs Hub Single Authority is seeking expressions of interest for board directors.

For application information, please visit our Huon Valley Jobs Hub project page.

Last October it was announced that the State Government had allocated $1.625 million over three years for Huon Valley Council to facilitate the delivery of a regional jobs hub to service job seekers and businesses in the Huon Valley, Channel and Bruny Island region in partnership with the local community.

Acting Mayor Sally Doyle said Council had spent the last two years advocating for opportunities to attract a dedicated resource to connect job seekers with employers.

“The role of the board will provide oversight delivery and coordination of activities in the Huon Valley and Kingborough regions that support the objective to increase employment, workforce participation or re-engagement with formal education and training.

“Living and working in the place you call home is the ultimate dream for a lot of people,” Acting Mayor Sally Doyle said.

“We are thrilled to be a part of an initiative that seeks to help make this dream a reality for people in the Huon Valley and Kingborough local government areas.” Communications & Media Officer Huon Valley Council
