Griffith Business Chamber are proud to support the Griffith Now Hiring Campaign. 

We encourage you to support this project  with the aim of attracting Skilled Labour to our region which also fits into our 10 Point Plan under “Education & Employment”   

Education & Employment: Encourage superior access to all levels of education, to ensure job ready students are equipped to enter the workforce. Assist & promote incentives and/or initiatives to attract Skilled Labour.
Why & how does this affect the business community?: School leavers need to be job ready, this means encouraging the best opportunities during higher education and offer access to tertiary education at a local level. Retaining locals is crucial for population growth. Attracting skilled labour can improve a business’ performance and service.

Following on from the successful grant application to kick-start the Griffith Now Hiring project, The Griffith Now Hiring project are seeking support of Stage 2, to take the campaign well into 2019.
The initial Griffith Now Hiring campaign, which was driven and supported by Griffith City Council together with 15 business partners, achieved excellent results.
This project set out to attract people and their families to live and work in Griffith. It aimed to draw attention to our progressive regional city and the diversity of skilled job vacancies across many industries. Not only did this campaign draw 5,800 people to the GriffithNowHiring website, a little under 2,000 per month, but 200 people made a direct enquiry seeking more information about moving to Griffith, and one family moved.
Continuing with Stage 2 will include regular e-newsletters and website updates, Facebook posts, follow-up with, and mailing of, information packs to interested parties, plus targeted social media marketing campaigns driving people to our digital assets.
Griffith City Council invite you to become a Griffith Now Hiring Stage 2 partner.
