1000 jobs in 100 days is the challenge for Nortec
THE Tweed employment outlook improved in the last month, and a not for profit group hopes to enhance that situation even further as it embarks on its annual job finding campaign.
Not for profit employment group Nortec launched its third annual 1000 jobs in l00 days campaign on Thursday involving its offices from Tweed Heads to Coffs Harbour.
Marketing co-ordinator Michelle Dowding said it was an intense period where staff across their 16 regional offices competed against each other to be the first to hit job targets with the jobless being the winners.
The Tweed jobless rate has fallen from 6.8% to 5.7% in the new financial year thanks in large part to an increase in the number of community services jobs due to the ageing population.
She said the resulting publicity from the campaign generated an increase in job listings from employers.

There had also been growth in hospitality jobs as well as labouring positions thanks to all the roadworks underway in the region.
This year business owners who lodge a job vacancy with Nortec have the chance to win $1000 for the charity of their choice with three chances to win.
It is free to lodge a job vacancy.
