North West business leaders a Beacon to Marist students

Beacon is working with local North-West businesses to inspire students and create a job-ready generation of Tasmanians.

Beacon CEO, Scott Harris, said representatives of local construction businesses were spending today helping Marist students get excited about finding a job they love in one of the State’s fastest growing sectors.

“There are so many opportunities out there for young Tasmanians, especially in building and construction,” Mr Harris said.

“Whilst there are challenges in bringing together students, schools, businesses and the local community, the benefits and opportunities provided for the students by us all working together is what today is all about.

“Today students will be able to talk to representatives from Artisan Tiny Homes, Degree C, Stubbs Construction, Fairbrother and the Central Coast Council.

“Today’s session combines our professional facilitators with the experience of our business mentors and helps young people understand what jobs are out there in their community and how to find a job they enjoy and a career they will love.

“Events like today’s help to raise awareness and inspiration of career opportunities and delivers vital information for students around their next steps.

“We know that there are literally thousands of job opportunities in Tasmania at the moment and our challenge is to help young Tasmanians find their path and find a start to their career that’s really going to motivate them and get them excited about the future.

“Beacon is serious about motivating and inspiring a job-ready generation and this is a great way of helping to achieve that.

“We’d like to thank Marist and also the students as well as all of our business mentors.”
