CAREERSOURCE BREVARD AND CAREERSOURCE FLAGLER VOLUSIA UNITE TO EXPAND SERVICES TO EMPLOYERS AND JOBSEEKERS IN THE TRI-COUNTY REGION

CareerSource Brevard and CareerSource Flagler Volusia have consolidated their workforce boards. The new name is CareerSource Brevard Flagler Volusia (CSBFV) offering career centers in the tri-county area located in Palm Coast, Daytona Beach, Orange City, Titusville, Rockledge, Patrick Air Force Base and Palm Bay. Marci Murphy, CareerSource Brevard’s previous president, has been named the Executive Director of CareerSource Brevard Flagler Volusia. Ms. Murphy has a long history of workforce development leadership, having joined CareerSource Brevard in 2002, holding numerous positions before becoming president in 2016. The workforce board will retain administrative offices in Rockledge and Daytona Beach. There will be no interruption of workforce services across the tri-county area.

 

Driven by a shared vision to offer more employers and jobseekers the workforce services and resources critical to their success. The new workforce board will build a better future for the community through a continued commitment to excellence, efficiency and community growth. The merger is part of a multi-year comprehensive plan to offer a wider scope of employment services and training programs and boost collaboration among economic, education, business and government agencies. Consolidating Florida’s workforce boards, as required by the Reimagining Education and Career Help (REACH) Act and approved by the Florida Legislature and signed into law in 2021 by Governor Ron DeSantis, the agency will streamline administrative and programmatic processes.

 

“This is an opportunity to strengthen and expand our services to meet the needs of a wide range of jobseekers and employers in the region in a much broader capacity,” said Marci Murphy, CareerSource Brevard Flagler Volusia Executive Director. “With the merging of teams comes the opportunity to explore new perspectives, standardize operations, and build innovative programs to answer the needs of an ever-changing workforce environment.” Murphy’s sector-strategy approach aims to solve regional workforce challenges — directing initiatives that target in-demand industries including Aerospace/Aviation, Advanced Manufacturing, Construction and IT/Cybersecurity to drive regional growth.
