Jobs on offer at Bundaberg Jobs Fair

The Coalition Government’s Bundaberg Jobs Fair will bring together local job seekers and businesses in and around the region on Thursday 16 September at the Bundaberg Multiplex Sport and Convention Centre.

Minister for Employment, Workforce, Skills, Small and Family Business, the Hon Stuart Robert MP, said the jobs fair will promote a wide range of employment opportunities for job seekers looking to get into work.

“The Morrison Government is committed to connecting job seekers with businesses looking to hire, as we continue our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic,” Minister Robert said.

“Creating jobs and boosting the skills of Australians to help them get back into work is at the heart of our Economic Recovery Plan.

“Continuing the strong momentum we’ve seen in the local labour market, we want as many job seekers as possible to upskill and reskill and get work in their communities.”

Assistant Minister for Youth and Employment Services, the Hon Luke Howarth MP, said certain sectors of the economy are experiencing a strong demand for workers.

“We know there is a real need to fill vacancies across the Australian labour market, which is why the Bundaberg Jobs Fair is so important,” Assistant Minister Howarth said.

“We encourage jobs seekers to attend the Jobs Fair as they will hear first-hand from employers about what they look for when hiring. This fair will also give jobs seekers the opportunity to meet people and network.”

Federal Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt said there would be more than 375 jobs on offer at the fair.

“Prominent sectors on the day will include the care sector, agriculture, defence and hospitality, which will all play a key role in our economic recovery,” Mr Pitt said.

“The Coalition Government is committed to helping job seekers find employment opportunities, whether they’re looking in Bundaberg or somewhere else in south-east Queensland.”

Mr Pitt said the Government’s ongoing commitment to creating more jobs will help set Australia up for prosperity.

“Our plan to connect local job seekers with work will help Australia bounce back stronger than ever after the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr Pitt said.
