Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast is committed to connecting industry with a suitably skilled workforce and upskilling existing workers to grow our business and industries contributing to a vibrant regional economy.

The ways we can assist your business to secure the staff it needs include:

 

Regional Work SA

We have partnered with the State Government to launch an exciting new initiative supporting our region by connecting job seekers to employment opportunities. The ‘Real Work. Real Experience.’ initiative aims to boost regional workforce and regional South Australia’s capacity to drive our State’s economic recovery post COVID-19.

Our agriculture, tourism and hospitality industries, and many others, are in need of workers to help keep our supply chains flowing, and our industries thriving. There are seasonal work opportunities, as well as many full-time and part-time jobs across Limestone Coast and available now.

For more information on how to get your vacancy registered on our job board or how to request a visit from the team, please visit our webpage here.

 

Local Jobs Program

Launched in August 2020 by Senator Michaela Cash, the Local Jobs Program supports tailored approaches to accelerate reskilling, upskilling and employment in 25 regions across Australia. Recognising that regions have been impacted by COVID-19 in varying ways, the program includes:

  • 25 Employment Facilitators across 25 regions
  • a Local Jobs and Skills Taskforce in each of these regions
  • a Local Jobs Plan developed for each of these regions
  • projects funded through a Local Recovery Fund in each of these regions.

We have a support role in this program and can connect your and your business to the Employment Facilitator working in our region. You can read the Factsheet here. 

 

Start the Conversation – linking skilled workers to the Limestone Coast

Every year the South Australian Government assists in bringing thousands of skilled workers to the State under the skilled visa program.  These skilled migrants have been nominated by the state of South Australia as they have been identified as persons that have skills and qualifications that match our in-demand occupations.  At RDALC we want to start your conversation with work-ready skilled employees that want to make the Limestone Coast their home.

Currently looking for roles in the Limestone Coast are people in the following skilled occupations;

  • Electrician
  • IT Project Management
  • Dentist
  • Teacher
  • Accountant
  • Pharmacist

These skilled migrants hold visas (either permanent or provisional) for Australia with full work rights and therefore your business is not required to sponsor them.  These visa holders have undergone a range of assessments as a part of their visa application, which includes skills assessments, English language proficiency, health and character checking.

If you are interested in contacting skilled migrants in the above occupations, please send your vacancy details to info@rdalc.org.au RDALC will then send your vacancy information onto the skilled migrant and ask them to contact you with their CV and personal details.

Please note: RDALC are not vetting the potential candidates or arranging interviews.  Our role is simply to connect employers with potential employees, for you to begin the conversation and find out if they have the skills your business needs. We hope that this conversation is the first of many.
