Employ local, buy local

We have a commitment to employ and buy locally where we can so we can keep the benefits local. Our approach to maximising opportunities for local participation is centered on four key areas:

  1. Prioritise the procurement of local businesses for goods and services
  2. Encourage and facilitate future local business capability
  3. Prioritise local employment
  4. Encourage and facilitate future local employment through training and skills pathways

Opportunities for Tasmanians

With such a significant construction investment, it is anticipated that there will be many opportunities for local Tasmanian businesses to be involved. Goods and services likely to be procured locally include:

  • Accommodation and catering
  • Engineering
  • Construction materials and equipment
  • Local labour
  • Earthworks services
  • Fencing and landscaping
  • Environmental monitoring

Due to the size of the project and the specialised skill set required, it is likely however that skilled workers from outside the region will also be required during the construction period.
