Career conversations at Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie

May 27, 2024

Staff from our local health district engaged with Mid Coast Connect to promote careers in health at the Coffs Connection and Port Macquarie Careers Markets on May 16 and 21.

These annual events help young people gain a broader awareness and understanding of locally available career pathways, employment and training opportunities.

They also allow health staff to speak with high school students in years 9 – 12 from schools across the Mid North Coast.

Our staff teams supported stalls at Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie Racecourses and spoke to many of the more than 3000 students who attended about opportunities in healthcare, our corporate sector and patient support services.

Our Ministry of Health colleague also joined us to promote regional scholarships for local students to empower them to achieve their career goals.
