CTC's Million Dollar Job Pledge initiative kicks off

ROCKHAMPTON business CTC wants the young people of today to be the helping hands of putting money back into the CQ region.

In an aim to generate jobs for young people and get local businesses on board, CTC has started the Million Dollar Job Pledge initiative where CQ businesses that pledge to hire a trainee or an apprentice between now and February will be eligible for financial incentives.
