Career Services Secured for the Region

By: Sue Whitbourne

Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland (RDAMR) Inc. are pleased to announce that their delivery of career development services will continue, after recently winning a competitive tender and being successfully awarded a service contract from the Department of State Development.

With 6 out of 10 people who utilise the services of the CDC gaining meaningful employment, our local and qualified Career Practitioners are available to provide support to under-employed workers, the unemployed, those facing redundancy or retrenchment, people looking to return to the workforce or seeking a career change and school leavers.

Our staff can assist clients by providing assistance with preparing resumes, applications and interviews, career planning and coaching, researching and organising training pathways. We also provide advice on local industries and employment opportunities, in addition to gathering evidence towards Recognition of Prior learning (RLP). Non-Australian residents living within the region can also participate providing they have an appropriate work visa.  

This FREE service is available at our main offices in Murray Bridge and Berri in addition to being available in outreach locations at the Coorong District Council’s Civic Centre at Tailem Bend, the Mid Murray Council Offices in Mannum, the Loxton Research Centre, Waikerie and Renmark.

For those who do not meet the eligibility criteria, assistance is available on a paid basis.

“We see the Career Development Centre as a key initiative in the region as it aids in the development of the local workforce, providing them with the support and tools to self-manage their career", said Jo Podoliak, Chief Executive of RDAMR.

“In a region where retaining a local workforce is critical to the future development of our region, the role of the Career Development Centre is vital to engage with individuals seeking assistance and devising a solution that can best suit their needs so retaining the contract to continue delivering these services is a win-win for the region”.

The CDC has a strong connection with local industries and community groups and is able to provide tailored workshops and development support to assist with regional needs.
