Stockland and Brookfield Multiplex launch innovative Connectivity Centre

Stockland and Brookfield Multiplex officially opened the Stockland Green Hills Connectivity Centre, an innovative initiative to match local job seekers with employment opportunities resulting from the $372-million Green Hills shopping centre redevelopment now underway.

The Stockland Green Hills Connectivity Centre is a whole-of-community response to the high level of local unemployment in the Hunter, particularly among young people. For the first time in the Hunter region, jobactive providers, led by youth not-for-profit yourtown, along with Maitland City Council, local employers and community groups, have come together to support and assist those most disadvantaged by unemployment, linking them to job opportunities generated by the redevelopment.

Due for completion in mid-2018, the Stockland Green Hills redevelopment will generate more than 1,350 direct jobs during construction and over 1,250 permanent, full-time jobs in retail and hospitality once completed.
David Ghannoum, Regional Managing Director NSW & ACT, Brookfield Multiplex, said the Connectivity Centre was many years in the making and followed extensive discussions with the community about what kind of assistance was most valued.

The redevelopment of Stockland Green Hills is expected to be complete by April 2018. SCN
