Helping local businesses compete for contracts

Advance Rockhampton supports and advocates for the region’s local businesses. We help our businesses prepare for the opportunities that come out of major supply chains. From start-up entrepreneurs to mining equipment technology and services specialists, we’re here to help businesses find their entry point into supply chain networks. 

Advance Rockhampton has delivered public briefings and training courses to help local businesses compete in major supply chains. Over the last year, many businesses have completed the Certificate IV in Small Business Management course, attended the Gear Up Rocky – Supply Chain Workshops and special briefing sessions. 

Advance Rockhampton is continuing to offer tangible training and development initiatives which will add value to the local workforce and business sector in their bid to secure work within major supply chains. To explore your opportunities or the next event, contact the Advance Rockhampton team. 

Local Content Advocacy 

The Advance Rockhampton team are passionate advocates for our local business community. Our team remain at the forefront of mining, agriculture, construction, health and major infrastructure projects. We work closely with the managing contractors and proponents of these major projects to ensure the “local spend” of these projects remain a part of our respected and established local industries. Communication is key to ensure your business is capitalising on the opportunities offered by significant local projects. If you believe you are not remaining up to date with upcoming work packages, contact the Advance Rockhampton team today. 

When you spend local, your investment remains in the community you are a part of. The Rockhampton Regional Council and Advance Rockhampton encourage our entire community to support your local businesses. When compiling tender packages or a list of subcontractors, put your locals first!
