Those looking for a new career, to enhance their skillset or meet likeminded job seekers are encouraged to attend the Bundaberg Careers Expo on Wednesday.
It will be a hive of activity at the Bundaberg Multiplex from 9 am to 4 pm with a range of businesses and organisations on hand to chat to locals about career opportunities in the area.
The expo is a partnership event between Bundaberg Regional Council, Link and Launch (Department of Education) and Jobs Bundaberg and aims to connect the region’s industry with the community to enable pathways to employment and further education.
Mayor Jack Dempsey said Council was proud to co-host the expo and provide information to those who may wish to start a career in local government.
“Bundaberg Regional Council is a major employer in the region and we offer many exciting employment and career opportunities for jobseekers,” he said.
“The Bundaberg Careers Expo is a great opportunity, not only for Council, but for jobseekers to meet with a wide variety of potential employers, educators and service providers while having real conversations with real people about employment.”
A key focus of the 2023 expo is to equip young people across the region with information and tools to successfully navigate life after school.
Link and Launch spokesperson Bec Egan said she was excited to meet local school students on Wednesday.
“The expo is a great opportunity for Link and Launch to engage with the year 12 students in the region and highlight the assistance we can provide them once they graduate from high school,” she said.
“Additionally, we are looking to meeting with all of the incredible exhibitors because it will give us a chance to network, remain informed, and stay in contact with the many options that are available to help our youth make transitions that are both meaningful and sustainable once they graduate.”
Silver sponsor Access Recreation will also be on hand to provide information and support.
The organisation's Cirsty Murphy said she looked forward to meeting with many job seekers who were interested in making a difference in the lives of people living with a disability.
“We look forward to connecting with job seekers to discuss in more detail about a career in support work,” she said.
“It’s a fantastic way for business to connect with job seekers who are looking for employment.”
