What is the Dorrie Day First Nations Careers Day?

The First Nations careers day 'Dorrie Day' is a day for our mob to engage with businesses and organisations from Bundaberg, Gladstone, Calliope and surrounding areas to develop an understanding and passion for the many First Nations identified roles throughout our community. Community members, job-seekers, students and employers will have the opportunity to engage with different businesses, and organisations and understand the positions and careers available to them.

Connect and engage with mob at the PCCC 2023 Dorrie Day First Nations Careers Day

Commencing in August 2020 this annual expo is recognised as a comprehensive First Nations Careers Expo in the Bundaberg & Gladstone region with the focus on Employment and Training opportunities for our mob.

In 2022, Dorrie Day saw an explosion of excitement and dedication, as demonstrated by the enthusiastic turnout of First Nations job seekers and students from various regions in Bundaberg and Gladstone. The event welcomed 1000 attendees and featured over 80 exhibitors, providing ample opportunities for employment and meaningful discussion.

PCCC would like to build the capacity of communities to ensure that underserved Indigenous communities have the best opportunity, skills, and knowledge to successfully pursue the education and training that will enable them to achieve their career and life goals. We will work towards a future where all First Nations peoples are empowered and equipped with the education and training needed to succeed in a diverse and global society. PCCC acknowledges the value of a community event that will showcase First Nations roles within the local community while supporting the attendees with support of what they need to achieve to obtain these roles.

Our goals for Dorrie Day

Dorrie Day is an educational event to drive change in people's understanding of employment and to be a mechanism for change.

We want to change the way people view employment, change their belief in their employment skills, and drive the dream to success! We don’t expect that people will walk away with a job, but we do expect they will walk away feeling informed about their future employment choices. Dorrie Day is NOT your typical event, it creates a day of possibilities and curiosity. There will be music, dancing, team sports, demonstrations, colourful displays, and of course, people who want to change their lives and their families' lives. This event creates a platform for businesses and communities to come together in cohesion and discuss opportunities.
