Cumberland Council is holding a workshop on Wednesday, 20 November to help local job seekers find employment, training or volunteer roles in the community.


“We are building a community where no one is left behind. We must boost jobs in the area and address unemployment figures,” Mayor Steve Christou said.


“Cumberland’s unemployment rate sits at about 9.5% compared to 6% across greater Sydney and we are committed to improving this.


“The Job Ready workshop is all about helping Cumberland residents to find a job, volunteer position or low cost training. This workshop will help residents to develop the skills that employers are looking for and gives them the relevant training to put their best foot forward and find work.”


Council is working with several businesses and non-government organisations to deliver the session.
