It’s not too late for job seekers to jump on board to help with the delivery of the NSW Government’s $19.4 billion regional roads and transport pipeline, during the most significant La Nina event the state has faced.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the ads went out two weeks ago for 47 jobs in the Dubbo electorate.
“From road workers, truck drivers and plant operators to team leaders and project engineers, we are recruiting local people to work right here in our region,” Mr Saunders said.
“Projects such as the New Dubbo Bridge and the Mindyarra Rail Maintenance Centre are just two examples of the ongoing projects being delivered, and it’s not too late for locals to throw their hats in the ring for these positions.
“We are building the infrastructure that matters to make daily life easier by improving safety, travel efficiency and freight productivity on our rail lines and roads.”
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Sam Farraway said there would be more than 80 new jobs across western NSW.
“The recent rain has wreaked havoc on our road network and our priority has been to repair these roads as quickly as possible by redirecting teams working on some of our major projects to assist with disaster repairs,” Mr Farraway said.
“With a substantial number of works happening all over the state and in particular in west region, we need to strengthen our workforce to ensure our projects remain on track.
“We are taking steps to ensure that these communities benefit by engaging as many local contractors as possible, and the influx of workers converging to construct these legacy projects bring value to the local economies.”
The jobs consist of 55 newly created full-time roles, as well as 28 temporary contract positions being converted to full-time jobs.
These new positions are open until October 19 and can be viewed online at https://jobs.transport.nsw.gov.au/go/Maintenance-and-Delivery/7834510/
