Stable, Educated & Skilled Workforce

The Bell Bay, George Town and wider Northern Tasmanian region has a stable and skilled workforce with a working population of almost 90 000. Ranging from administrators to professionals, technicians to tradespeople, labourers to apprentices, BBAMZ is serviced by a range of local and regional employees. Key industries for the region include manufacturing, agriculture and construction and the workforce is well versed in these areas. Commuting to the area is relatively easy due to the efficient road systems and lack of traffic congestion that benefits Tasmania.

The workforce as a whole benefits from the strong education culture that is fostered by Tasmanian educational facilities. With large numbers of the northern Tasmanian region studying in tertiary, technical or other post school education, there is a clear and strong regard for education in the region.

Also situated in Launceston is a campus of TasTAFE, one of Australia’s 10 largest Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). TasTAFE provides vocational education and training ensuring the region’s workforce is equipped with vocationally ready skills and that employers are supported with lifting the productivity of their workforces through skill development.

The region also benefits from The Underwater Centre, Tasmania (TUCT) situated at Beauty Point less than 40 minutes’ drive from Bell Bay. TUCT is one of only three locations worldwide where internationally recognised saturation diver training is provided. The Australian Diving Accreditation Scheme (ADAS) qualifications gained at TUCT are recognised worldwide.
