Future Jobs & Skills Workshop – 22 November 2018
The City of Wanneroo (the City) is one of Western Australia’s fastest growing local government areas with a rapidly growing population of approximately 7,000 per year, which is projected to continue over the next 50 years. The City is facing a major challenge to create 100,000 new local jobs to support this rapid growth and provide residents with a great quality of life.
Another factor adding to the complexity of this challenge is the constantly changing outlook for future jobs.
The Future Jobs & Skills Workshop looked at the current jobs situation, identified gaps and assessed skills requirements.
