These seminars bring practitioners, students and academics together to talk about developments in professional practice.
The usual format is that a practitioner(s) speaks for 20 or 30 minutes, discussion and then coffee at Aroma, downstairs. An opportunity to develop professional knowledge, extend your practitioner networks, all on the pleasant CityWest campus.
Practitioners and HR program students are welcome. No cost. Please RSVP if you intend to attend a seminar (so we can be certain we have enough seats, and we can let you know if there is a late change in the details of the event.)
This list will be updated throughout the year as more seminars are scheduled. Join the update list. Click here

HR and OHS employment opportunities in Australian mining - post
Although stalled for a few years by the Global Financial Crisis, the Australian mining industry is in the middle of an unprecedented long-term expansion. This expansion will continue to demand a vast supply of skilled and unskilled labour, far greater than the existing labour market can easily provide. HRM and OHS employment will continue to grow. The mining employers are developing and implementing sophisticated employment and safety management practices years ahead of the broader labour market. Damien is well placed to give an overview of where job growth is happening and how to position yourself for this growth.
