The Tamworth economy is set to benefit from 60 new jobs following a NSW Nationals in the state government decision to locate a TAFE NSW Shared Services Centre in the city.
NSW Nationals Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the facility, to be located at the existing TAFE NSW Tamworth campus, will include roles in student sales and support, admissions, customer enquiries and transactional activities.
“This is a great win for Tamworth and a recognition that we are a thriving regional centre, perfectly positioned to cater for this type of growth,” Mr Anderson said.
“The NSW Nationals in the state government investment will create employment opportunities and stimulate local business, as well as providing more choice for residents wishing to study and work in Tamworth.
Mr Anderson said TAFE NSW campuses in the electorate would play an increasingly important role in helping shape the local workforce of tomorrow.
“As our economy recovers from the COVID-19 downturn, TAFE NSW will continue to provide a pipeline of skilled graduates to help kickstart the local economy,” he said.
“The TAFE NSW Shared Services Centre is expected to be operational by 2023.”
The new facility is further evidence of the NSW Nationals in the state government’s commitment to regional jobs. Thriving regional centres like Tamworth have a ready supply of skilled labour, excellent digital connectivity, world-class infrastructure and practical and financial support from the NSW Nationals in the state government. These 60 new jobs will build on that further for Tamworth, bringing new income into the community and building its capacity.
