Local Jobs Program

The Local Jobs Program brings together businesses and community organisations to connect people to training, jobs and support services, and to support businesses with their workforce needs.

The NSW North Coast Local Jobs Program is proud to be involved with Primex 2024. We have collaborated with a range of local Employment, Support and Training Providers to bring them to you in one central marquee throughout the 3-day event. The Local Jobs Program marquee is designed to provide support and information to all people searching for work opportunities and to all employers/exhibitors seeking to build a sustainable workforce. Targeted information sessions will be delivered by our key stakeholders that will include topics covering Apprenticeships and Traineeships, Training Organisations and Training Services NSW, Wage Subsidies, business support with Aboriginal engagement and employment strategies, PALM Scheme (Pacific Australia Labour Mobility scheme) and more. These sessions will be tailored for individuals and business owners together with a live “Jobs Board” posting all current vacancies available by many of the Primex 2024 exhibitors/employers. Employers needing to find employees can join monthly Virtual Employer Connection sessions (NSW North Coast Only). This program connects employers to our local Workforce Australia providers between Grafton to Tweed and out to Casino/Kyogle to enable promotion of their vacancies, discuss employer expectations, employment conditions (pay and shifts), company culture and benefits etc as a means of hopefully assisting in identifying quality pre-screened candidates.

NextGen Program

With our partner Southern Cross University

Primex is committed and passionate about Australian agriculture and primary industries, supporting our rural and regional communities and showcasing the latest in innovation, education, and sustainable farming techniques and practices.

In partnership with Southern Cross University and some of our country’s most visionary and committed producer organisations, NextGen elevates the profile of the important pathways available in agriculture and primary industries.

NextGen promotes a premier range of campaigns resourced by these producer and grower organisations, creating opportunities for engagement all-year-round and highlighted during Primex.

Stakeholders supporting the NextGen program will work alongside career advisors, teachers and agricultural based government agencies to target and assist in a coordinated approach that offers;

Workshops, skills development, and support towards regional-national campaigns and competitions.

  • Innovation & Ag-Tech activities (drones, gps, precision ag equipment, apps, etc.)
  • Skills development activities including practical elements e.g., fencing, livestock & agronomy
  • Introductions to regenerative agriculture, risk & safety, national best-practices
  • Building relationships and networks through membership, industry and awarding achievement

The NextGen program is continuing to develop and grow, we therefore welcome any interested parties to join several state and national based organisations supporting this initiative to empower Australia’s Next Generation of farmers and primary industry production.
