The Resource Channel win at The Australian Web Awards

Australia, 12 November 2010 - Employment information website for the Australian resource sector, The Resource Channel, received the national award for the ‘Best Blog Website’ at The Australian Web Awards in Perth on 6 November 2010.

The awards are designed to showcase and recognise outstanding website design, functionality and content. The Resource Channel Director, Jody Elliott said the win provides national recognition for the West Australian-based business which offers a simple, centralised, go-to point for those seeking employment-related information.

“The Resource Channel presents an exclusive platform for employers, associations, agencies and training providers to brand, communicate with, and engage the job market. We increase the value to recruiters and job seekers by providing information that is not always readily accessible elsewhere,” said Ms Elliott.

Ms Elliott was thrilled with winning the Blog Category and all that it represents.

“It specifically recognises the quality and contribution of content for public consumption,” she said. “The main judging criteria were based on how well the content aligns with the overall purpose of the site.”

The Resource Channel worked in collaboration with DogHouse Media, led by Simon Shackleton, to design and develop the website.

“The award represents web industry recognition for the use of cutting-edge web technology, and highlights our commitment to bring further technology solutions to the resource sector,” said Mr Shackleton. “We are proud of the win and look forward to repeating our success in 2011.”

With the anticipated significant demand for skills and labour over the next decade, The Resource Channel aims to meet industry and job seeker needs by providing valuable employment-related information easily and in real-time. 

"Because our team works in the industry, and always has, we can debunk many of the myths associated with careers in the industry. We receive regular feedback from entry-level and experienced employees who feel the need for greater transparency and information from organisations. The website provides a simple, centralised and industry-specific podium to achieve this,” Ms Elliott said.
