Located on the Northam campus of Central Regional TAFE, just outside the historic town of Northam – the heart of the Avon Valley farmlands – Northam Jobs and Skills Centre can provide free professional and practical advice on training and employment opportunities including careers advice, apprenticeship and training information and partnerships with industry, and also help with job searching and direct links into work.
The team at Northam JSC has great experience in the region and local communities, expertise in Aboriginal workforce development, and with working with local employers. The Northam Jobs and Skills Centre is supported by career and Aboriginal services from Directions, who also provide outreach services at other locations.
