South-West WA’s Premiere Job & Employment Information Portal
The Southern Forest Employment Hub will allow employers from all industries across the whole region easy access to exchange information on the availability of jobs and will allow job seekers in all industries to lodge their details as well, and is intended to be economically independent and sustainable once established.

Manjimup Community Resource Centre, “Your Local Connection”, was a natural fit to respond to the needs of the rich and diverse needs of local farmers. With over 50 different fruit, vegetable and nut crops including table staples such as potatoes and apples, and niche market high end food products such as truffles and pickled walnuts, the seasonal labour needs of the region are complex and variable and best served by an agency “on the ground”.
