UP to 110 indigenous job seekers will be able to gain access to Sunraysia Regional Consulting’s (SRC) job training placements after the Federal Government yesterday provided $1 million through its Indigenous Advancement Strategy.

Indigenous Affairs Minister, Senator Nigel Scullion, was in Mildura to announce funding which will allow SRC to continue its employment program – which started in 2003 - for the next three years.

“There are a number of job placements in the transport industry, the emerging energy industry in terms of the solar panels and maintenance of those solar panels, in horticulture and agriculture ... but we’re also doing things in dentistry and hospital entry level and health clinics,” Mr Scullion said.
