About Us     


Regional Development Australia is an Australian Government Intiative that brings together local, state and federal governments in partnership to enhance the development of Australia's regions. Regional Development Australia Limestone Coast (RDALC) provides a range of services and programs to the community, business and industry, government and non-government agencies and other stakeholders.

Career Services was funded by Department for Industry and Skills. Funding for this service ceased in June 2018.




Give Back to the Community

The Limestone Coast Career Services team have come up with ideas to encourage CDC participants to give back to the community, as the CDC provides a community service for individuals. A small brochure has been put together with both serious and light - hearted suggestions for people to take on board when considering volunteering. Suggestions range from donating goods, helping someone in need in your neighborhood – or even starting at home by contributing to household tasks such as “picking up your wet towels” !

C – Career choices

A career consists of many jobs and occupations. Making the right choices is easier if you know what interests you and what you are good at. Limestone Coast Career Services can support you in making choices that will work for you.


A – Access your networks

The people you know and meet can support you and may know of career opportunities for you. Limestone Coast Career Services can be a part of your powerful network.


R – Research the job market

Many jobs are not advertised widely and every region has hidden jobs and opportunities for employment. Limestone Coast Career Services has comprehensive information about the job market and can give you techniques for job search.


E – Employability skills

The employability skills are wanted by every employer. The employability skills are communication, teamwork, problem solving, initiative and enterprise, planning and organising, self-management, learning, and technology. Limestone Coast Career Services can work with you to document evidence of your employability skills and ways to further develop them.


E – Explore your current skills

Everyone has skills but many of us do not have the accreditation which recognizes these skills. Limestone Coast Career Servicescan support   you to gather evidence of your skills so that you can have these skills recognized and accredited.


R – Resumes –your marketing tool

Resumes give an important first impression to a potential employer. Limestone Coast Career Services can support you in putting together a contemporary resume which showcases your skills.






Approximately 65% of participants find employment as the result of the support they receive to manage their career. Others take part in training, apprenticeships or carry out volunteer work.
