Swan Hill’s Connect U site is now live!

Posted: 5th Jun

The Connect U portal is an online intersection of regional jobs, trending industries, further education and training options and useful resources for those in or considering working, studying or living in the Swan Hill region. The project is a collaboration between Regional Development Victoria, the City of Swan Hill and the Murray Mallee Local Learning and Employment Network (MMLLEN).

The Swan Hill municipality has experienced significant growth over the past decade, lead by the expansion of horticultural / agricultural practices and supported by an innovative manufacturing sector. This success is depicted by the fact the region is now Australia’s largest producer of table grapes, pistachios and olives, the second largest producer of wine grapes in Victoria and accounts for approximately 70% of Australia’s Almonds and Olive Oil production.

Advancements to key tourism products and services have supported an increase in visitor numbers over the past five years. Today the region attracts 207,000 domestic overnight visitors which convert to over one million overnight stays, stimulating the local economy by approximately $102 million.

The Connect U portal provides the necessary link to connect potential employers to employees and future opportunities to ensure the continued growth of the Swan Hill region.
