At NORTEC, we strive to ensure all commercial and non-profit activities have a positive impact on the community’s social and economic wellbeing, across all four of our service areas. We achieve this through adhering to ethical and sustainable business practices, and standing by our service moto:
“Listening to Understand. Seeking Real Solutions”.
NORTEC is a for-purpose, community owned organisation. Therefore, we invest funds from our commercial enterprises to support the delivery of community programs, social enterprise initiatives, small business support and community grants & sponsorships.
These activities assist us in giving back to our community in a way that supports and promotes social engagement and economic growth.
NORTEC came about following the merger between TTEC Enterprises, an organisation part of the Tweed community since 1979, and Ballina Skills and Development Centre, based in the Northern Rivers region since 1986. Both companies formed out of a desire to create employment opportunities and promote economic growth in our local region.
Since the merger of these two like-minded companies in 2007, NORTEC has successfully grown to over 40 office locations through the Mid- and Upper-New South Wales region (Forster to Tweed Heads), and through South-East Queensland (from Palm Beach to Brisbane).
