Local participation and employment
Northern Pathways values local participation and are working with major subcontractors to utilise local industry and employment where possible. If you would like to express your interest in the project, please visit http://northernpathways.com.au/creating-new-pathways
All currently available positions with John Holland are advertised via their website.
Northern Pathways is partnering with a number of local employment agencies during the construction phase to boost local employment and participation. These companies are as follows:
- Complete Staffing Solutions – www.completestaff.com.au
- WorkPac – www.workpac.com
- Aboriginal Employment Strategy (AES) – www.aes.org.au
- DMAC – dmacpersonnel.com.au
- Programmed Skilled – programmed.com.au
Serco, the operators of the new prison, are committed to ensuring local people with the right skills and attributes have the opportunity to work in the new prison. Serco are working with TAFE NSW and local employment provider, ETC, to ensure local people have the right skills and qualifications to work in the new facility.
A local recruitment process will begin in late 2018. If you would like to find out more about working with Serco, or to register your interest, please visit http://graftonserco.com.au/
As they are appointed, major subcontractors will be posted on the Northern Pathways website to encourage local companies to approach them and offer goods and services. More information on how to engage with major subcontractors will be made available later this year.
Please note that all subcontractors in the construction phase are required to comply with the Building Code, and the Implementation Guidelines to the New South Wales Code of Practice for Procurement Building and Construction (NSW Code).
