With more than 100 career paths to choose from, the Australian Meat Processor Corporation announced the Meat. Your Career campaign last week.

An extension of the Meat. Your Future campaign, the Meat. Your Career aims at attracting a variety of workers including school leavers, TAFE, university and college students, residents of rural communities and migrants.

The campaign was announced because of the growing need to plan human resources in WA to help keep the national $23 billion red meat processing industry sustainable.

AMPC chairman Peter Noble said the campaign was an important project as many people would not know about the benefits of working in the red meat processing industry.

“It’s a dynamic industry that offers diversity and innovations, where employees can continue to earn while they learn,” he said.

Career paths within the meat processing industry range from management, to graduate positions, labourers, technical skilled positions and senior supervisor roles.

AMPC is the national research and development organisation that represents the red meat processing industry throughout Australia.

The corporation’s mandate is to support research, development and extension initiatives that are directed at improving the sustainability and efficiency of the meat processing industry.

Employing more than 34,000 people in the red meat processing industry, the AMPC is Australia’s largest food product manufacturing industry, exporting to eight countries around the world.
