Warwick Solar Farm to bring local job seekers new opportunities
Lendlease and Southern Downs Regional Council are hosting an information
session for residents to explore the employment opportunities the Warwick Solar
Farm project will bring to the Southern Downs.
Lendlease staff will
be on hand at the free, drop-in session to answer questions and share
information with job seekers.
It is the second
information session to be held by Lendlease and Council following a workshop
for local sub-contractors held in December.
The construction of
the 154 hectare solar farm will require skills across a range of industries and
trades including, among others, truck drivers, bus drivers, cleaners, general
labourers, survey assistants and plant operators including forklift, franna,
riggers, dogman and all terrain forklift.
The detailed design
and construction phase of the Warwick Solar Farm is set to commence in early
2019 with the solar farm expected to be complete and generating energy by early
Southern Downs Mayor
Tracy Dobie said Warwick Solar Farm is a significant project which will
generate jobs and diversify the region’s economy.
Lendlease employment information session is a practical step for residents to
understand how the development can benefit them and support local industry and
our economy,” Cr Dobie said.
“The Warwick Solar
Farm will generate more than 100 jobs for the Southern Downs and I encourage
all local residents seeking employment to come along to the session to explore
these great opportunities.
“This is a huge $125M
project that will take a year to complete, bringing job opportunities and a major
boost to the economy, and Council wants as
many local workers as possible to be involved.”
Employment Information Session will be held on Thursday, 31 January from 4pm
until 6pm at Warwick Town Hall. For more
