CONNECT | LEARN | INFLUENCE

Business Connect is about creating outreach and collaboration to continue the valuable work of connecting business owners with persons looking for employment. The Toowoomba Chamber’s focus has been to build a local skills supply chain, supporting our member businesses to utilise skills from our migrant and refugee population.   

Toowoomba Chamber’s Business Connect program is a joint initiative between the Toowoomba Chamber and our major partner, CatholicCare Social Services. The main focus of the project is to develop and support employment partnerships between our member businesses and skilled migrants and refugees.
