Bundaberg businesses and organisations are being encouraged to showcase what they have to offer jobseekers at an all-new expo that aims to connect the community with local careers.
The 2022 Bundaberg Jobs and Careers Showcase will be held at the Bundaberg Multiplex on Wednesday 5 October and will provide a hub for businesses to link with school students and residents looking for local job opportunities.
The new initiative is a partnership between Bundaberg Regional Council, Jobs Bundaberg, Local Jobs Program and Link and Launch.
The Bundaberg Regional Jobs Committee is proudly supported and funded by the Queensland Government.
Mayor Jack Dempsey said the event was designed to give residents an insight into the wide array of career opportunities and pathways within the Bundaberg Region.
“This initiative is all about local industry and the community coming together and we envision the day to be a one-stop-shop for all things related to local jobs,” he said.
“It will be a day for resumes to be printed and for interviews to be held with the aim to see direct job outcomes from the event.”
“These facts are what makes the Bundaberg Jobs and Careers Expo such an important initiative because it will give even more locals the chance to find more local work,” he said.
“We have a large number of industries such as health, manufacturing and agriculture that have a huge demand for jobs in our region.
“This expo is an opportunity for those industries to position themselves as an employer of choice and to educate and influence the region’s future and current workforce.”
CQUniversity Bundaberg has come on board to sponsor the event with senior marketing officer Luke McCracken stating it was the perfect opportunity for residents to broaden heir horizons.
“The event showcases the enormous opportunity that exists within our great region,” he said.
“Job providers across a wide variety of industries and education providers will be present, providing the community with the chance to access valuable advice from professionals.
“It’s the event to be at for anyone thinking of what their next career move will be or what steps they need to take to achieve it.”
Applications to be part of the 2022 Bundaberg Jobs and Careers Showcase are now open, with the opportunity to also become a sponsor of the event.
