RDA Moreton Bay in partnership with RDA Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay Regional Council, Sunshine Coast Regional Council and DEEWR have jointly appointed Deloitte Access Economics to undertake strategic workforce development research to identify the region’s supply of skills and labour to meet future demands of key infrastructure projects and the resource sector boom.
There is currently no comprehensive strategic workforce development plan to quantify employment opportunities and skills requirements for our region’s major infrastructure projects, which are anticipated to create more than 20,000 jobs over the next five years.
To help maximise these opportunities, Deloitte Access Economics has conducted conduct research into the region’s labour and skills needs and provided a report that will form the basis of a regional workforce development strategy and action plan.
The workforce research will be used to develop education, training, labour market assistance and skills development programs to meet the needs of major projects across both regions.
Major projects in the Moreton Bay Region, include:
➢ Caboolture West
➢ Moreton Bay Rail Link
➢ North East Business Park
➢ North Lakes
➢ NBN Roll Out.
