Local Content Adviser Program
Your local Content Adviser, supporting business growth in the South West
The State Government launched a Local Content Program to maximise the participation of local businesses in regional supply or works contracting opportunities. Recognising that it can often be challenging for businesses to access and engage as a supplier, Local Content Advisers take a lead role in promoting supply opportunities and facilitating regional business capability and growth. In the South West region, your Local Content Adviser, Zoe Bodycoat, is available to provide assistance to local businesses.
As part of the Local Content Adviser Network, the Local Content Adviser, works with a range of stakeholders including government, industry groups and local businesses to tailor activities to respond to the unique requirements of their communities. The focus is on helping support regional businesses tender for State Government supply opportunities. This role is an essential component of the WA Industry Link initiative under the Western Australian Jobs Act 2017.
