New website to attract skilled workers to Orana region

A new website, Love The Life We Live, will focus on encouraging people from metropolitan areas to move to the Orana region, through promoting the relaxed lifestyle, job opportunities, friendly communities and affordable housing across the region.

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana has collaborated with Bourke, Cobar, Coonamble, Gilgandra, Mid-Western, Narromine, Walgett, Warren, Warrumbungle and Wellington Councils to develop the website, which will aim to attract skilled workers to move to and settle in regional areas.

“Our workforce research has shown that employers across the Orana region are experiencing skills shortages. This is affecting the productivity of industry and the region’s productivity as a whole. Our strategy is to overcome some of these skills shortages by attracting new workers to the region and encouraging them to settle here,” said Felicity Taylor-Edwards, CEO of RDA Orana.

The website includes comprehensive information about employment, housing, education, available services and economic data as well as an event calendar. It showcases the region’s various benefits and demonstrates that new residents will “love the life we live”.

Employers are being encouraged to provide the website URL to new and potential recruits as a source of information about the Orana region. Orana residents could also provide details to their friends and relatives considering a move towards a relaxed lifestyle and improved job opportunities.
