More than 30 representatives from Seymour and district businesses attended the Australian Rail Track Corporation, ARTC, Inland Rail Skills Academy event on May 16 to explore workforce opportunities on the Inland Rail Project.

Attendees received an overview of the Inland Rail Project, explanation of potential supply opportunities, a snapshot of the local labour market and information about support available for businesses that take on apprentices and trainees.

Personnel Group employment consultant Patricia Cochrane, from Kilmore, said the information provided was informative and relevant with speakers being well informed.

“The meet and greet opportunity with other business representatives was invaluable and we appreciate being a part of this event,” she said.

ARTC Victoria and South Australia Projects general manager Ed Walker said the events helped ensure ARTC delivered real and lasting opportunities for regional communities.

“Our workforce development events are just part of Inland Rail’s commitment to communities where Australia’s largest freight project is being built and operated,” he said.

“With Inland Rail already delivering business uplift and jobs confidence in communities along the rail corridor, workforce events such as these will help ensure Inland Rail’s positive impacts go beyond the construction period for the project.”
