Osborne Park, Western Australia (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
The third Skills West Expo is being held in Perth, Australia, from 10-12 August 2012. Local human resources services company, TR7, in announcing its participation in the event, has revealed its focus to be on skills development over a range of industries.
The TR7 Group has, since 2003, provided well-trained and qualified staff to, most notably, the booming mining, oil and gas industries of Australia. However, its training and employment services have been designed to encompass all sectors.
“At Skills West Expo 2012, we are focusing on skills development”, said Shane Anderson, Director of the TR7 Group. “Our experience in recruitment has shown us that it is only when candidates have the necessary training and qualifications will they be considered for the best jobs.”
“Right now there are $275 billion worth of projects approved in Western Australia in the resources sector – mining, oil and gas. This is more than all the other states combined”, Mr. Anderson explained. “We need 76,000 workers by 2015 to meet this demand. This will put added pressure on our state with the current unemployment rate is 3.5% compared to the eastern states which is above 5% and 5.2% nationally.”
He continued, “Increasingly, only those candidates who have undertaken the necessary training, or who have the prerequisite qualifications, are shortlisted for those jobs. West Australians are competing with the rest of the country, and, in some cases, overseas applicants, for these positions. ”
TR7 is encouraging students, job candidates, and potential employers to visit their booth at the Expo, to learn about the skills training options available.
“We have a range of Certificate II, III and IV courses available which encompass OH&S, Frontline Management and Community Services”, said Mr. Anderson. “Our Indigenous Pre-Employment Training Program is of particular importance, and there is often government funding available to help students to become skilled - whatever their age.”
TR7 Group Career Advisors will be present throughout the Expo, which is being held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
