BUSY At Work is once again proudly partnering with The JobShow to be held on 19 October at the TAFE Qld East Coast, Mooloolaba Campus.
Presented by the Sunshine Coast Council, The JobShow is the largest one-stop shop of current and upcoming job vacancies on the Sunshine Coast and brings together hundreds of available jobs from across the region in the one place, at the one time on the one day.
BUSY At Work AASN Team Leader, Sunshine Coast/Gympie, Sharon Hollis said BUSY was proud to be a silver sponsor of the event which combines a whole range of industries including retail, hospitality, health, professional services, management, tourism and IT.
“The JobShow attracts a very large mix of job seekers and employers and makes it easier for businesses to find the right staff.”
“The event allows job seekers to connect directly to employers and breaks down the who you know factor so that socially isolated and disadvantaged people can break into the hidden job market. This includes unemployed people and those looking for a new job or a better job,” Ms Hollis said.
The JobShow Director Kris McCue said this years event was all about building on the success of last years campaign.
“Last year over 170 people were able to get a job as a result of The JobShow. In this years campaign there will be jobs available during the next 5 weeks leading up to the event as well as on the day.”
“The JobShow is all about local employers and the community coming together. We have a lot of Sunshine Coast employers as well as registered training organisations and group training companies on board,” Mr McCue said.
Kris said a new feature at this years event was the Start Up Zone for businesses that provided B2B services.
“The Start Up Zone is about providing services and assistance for entrepreneurs and people who have, or are wanting to start their own business. Training providers will also have a Skills Zone which will help connect people with opportunities to get new skills that directly relate to available job opportunities,” Mr McCue added.
It is expected more than 65 local businesses will be involved in The JobShow including BUSY At Work, Youi, Stellar, Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Services, Gourmet Gardens and East Coast Apprenticeships.
Business registrations are now open for local employers who want to exhibit at the event or list jobs during the campaign. The JobShow will match registered candidates to available jobs and provide businesses with a shortlist of potentially suitable candidates.
BUSY At Work CEO, Paul Miles said BUSY was delighted to be a major sponsor of The JobShow.
“BUSY At Work acknowledges the important contribution that events like this have in bringing local employees and the community together to address the issue of unemployment.”
“Its a great way to support local economic development and job creation strategies as well as generate a sense of positivity and optimism in the community,” Mr Miles said.
Registrations are now open for anyone that wants a job, a new job, a different job or a better job at www.thejobshow.com.au
