Getting to know your Agriculture Workforce Officer

The Queensland Agriculture Workforce Network (QAWN) is an initiative of the Queensland Government, designed to assist the state’s food and fibre producers with local employment opportunities and skills training.

QAWN comprises of six regionally-based agriculture workforce officers, including Kylie Jackson who is available to provide advice to any primary producer and agribusiness in the Wide Bay Burnett, Gladstone and Banana regions. Connecting with agribusinesses to support the attraction, recruitment and development of skills throughout regions is a driver for an agriculture workforce officer.

Kylie is based with the Bundaberg Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association and is an advocate for facilitating partnerships between regional producers and community stakeholders. She aims to improve workforce relationships, build business confidence in local labour portals and facilitate opportunities to connect.
