Production Horticulture Workforce Development Officer for Far North Queensland
I address specific issues for Production Horticulture, including attracting new employees, keeping existing workers and managing seasonal work forces and enhancing human resource practises in production businesses.
I am part of a network of five officers placed within industry organisations in high priority growing regions.
Our network allows industry and government to identify barriers to industry participation in higher education and training and take action to help the sector optimise and maintain an efficient, available workforce.
This allows us to achieve greater engagement with training and employment service organisations and to improve delivery to industry.
