Cultural Tourism Project at Tiwi Design

Cultural Tourism Project at Tiwi Design

Categories: Employment, Job Seekers, Wurrumiyanga

As Manager of Tiwi Design, Steve Anderson works closely with TITEB who have been supplying a fantastic pool of workers for more than 10 years. Many local people have done activities and training at Tiwi Design, and moved into jobs in administration, front of house or as groundsmen.

This year, Tiwi Design will also be providing employment and training as part of the Bathurst Island Cultural Precinct development, funded by the Aboriginal Benefits Account. The pottery shed will be redeveloped and expanded into a training centre as well, and an eco-lodge will be built to provide much-needed tourist accommodation.

Currently, Tiwi Design is unable to meet demand for cultural tourism, which suggests there is significant potential for employment in this area. As part of the project, local people will be trained in a whole raft of new skills, including food preparation, hospitality, barista skills, and front of house. Construction workers will also be able to achieve their Certificate II in Construction.

Anyone interested in working or training as part of this exciting project should contact Steve at Tiwi Design or TITEB.
