The current recruitment drive at the Kimberly-Clark Australia Millicent Mill is not necessarily a response to current production levels.
The company is currently advertising for technicians to work on a temporary or casual basis.
At present, the plant has 400 company employees and contractors making it one of the largest employers in region.
It achieved record production levels and took on extra staff in mid-2020 as a result of COVID-related panic buying of toilet paper across the nation.
The SE Voice directed a number of questions to KCA about the current recruitment drive at the Millicent Mill and received a written response.
“Production levels at Millicent Mill have remained fairly consistent and we continue to distribute our Kleenex toilet paper and tissues and Viva paper towel products across the country as normal,” a KCA spokesperson said.
“The Millicent Mill is currently seeking to fill several production roles on a casual and temporary basis.
“We also have an online job ad which we keep posted permanently, as we are always seeking applications for future vacancies.”
In other KCA news, the company has donated a large number of its imported feminine hygiene products to Red Cross Limestone Coast.
These may be accessed from its Mount Gambier office.
“Kimberly-Clark Australia and our period care brand, U by Kotex, have been focussed on addressing period poverty in Australia for a very long time,” a KCA spokesperson said.
“We proudly support Share the Dignity and its partners to distribute products to those who need it most and this year alone we have donated more than 20,000 packs of pads and tampons.”
