Local First, Pipeline AZ partner on Rural Jobs Initiative

Partnership will revitalize the rural job market in Pinal County

Local First AZ and Pipeline AZ are pooling their resources to optimize how rural job seekers and businesses in Pinal County connect in our ever-evolving, competitive, and fast-paced job market. Pipeline AZ provides one centralized platform for rural career exploration, posting available jobs, and one-on-one career consultation with intent to keep rural talent working in or near their hometowns.

Over the next 10 years, the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) estimates that Pinal County will see between 1,800 and 3,400 new jobs each year as well as a 50% population growth. These numbers mean that an estimated 4,850 of Pinal County residents may find new employment in their local region instead of relocating to Maricopa County. Pipeline AZ is working to connect these workers to jobs that match their skills and interests.
