Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Pacesetters again, the City of Unley is the first council in South Australia to trial the Bizifyd youth employment program.

A program which will support both our local young people and our business community, Bizifyd provides young people aged 18-25 with business and enterprise skills that give them the opportunity to set up their own social media business and gain valuable work experience and skills.
The young participants of the Bizifyd will be provided with 6 weeks of training, followed by 6 weeks of hands on experience in delivering social media services to small businesses in Unley.
We are currently seeking five local young people aged 18 – 24 years to be part of the free 12-week program and who are passionate about social media/technology and are interested in running their own business.
We are also seeking expressions of interest from local businesses to be part of the initiative. Participating businesses will receive valuable social media and IT services at an affordable rate, while helping young people in our  local community gain valuable skills and work experience.
The program starts 30th September 2014 and applications for participation will close 19th September 2014.  All application forms will soon be available on Council’s website.
