Manufacturing & tourism/hospitality skills development project

*Employer Information Section*

The Community Training and Development Centre in collaboration with The County of Northumberland and community partners is excited to be offering a recruitment and onboarding project to local employers in the manufacturing and tourism/hospitality sectors.


This project will assist Northumberland County employers with:

  • Recruiting candidates
  • Preparing candidates for employment through basic training
  • Assess for strengths, and match candidates to your organization
  • Assist with onboarding using a virtual coach and the Chalenj app, a QR code enabled learning, information and procedures platform.
  • Support new and existing employees using the Chalenj platform that may lead to improved performance, reduced turnover and better-informed employees


Recruitment of candidates will commence June 2022. The employer is responsible for paying the salary once hired. Click below for more details and contact us if you would like to partner with us as an employer.

The workforce of tomorrow

Whether you are entering the workforce with little experience, in mid-career, or an older adult entering or re-entering with significant experience, you may be asking yourself, “Where am I needed within the workforce of today and tomorrow?” and “Will all future jobs involve technology?”. 

Although most jobs require experience with technology solutions, not everyone will want to work or study within technology and scientific sectors. There are many critically important jobs that will always be in need of workers. These jobs include parenting, education, health supports, food production, customer service, human services, supporting community development, economic development, mental health, supports for those who are aging, and many more. Click below to learn more about these career pathways.
