Mayor Jamieson - JobShow offers opportunities
  • Tuesday 27 September 2016

As our regional economy grows and diversifies so to do the opportunities for jobseekers on the Sunshine Coast.

One of the important roles our council plays in the employment sector each year is presenting the Sunshine Coast JobShow which aims to help even more local people find jobs in 2016.

It’s rewarding to hear of previous JobShow success stories like Louis Cadman who last year was searching for a permanent position and secured a four-year plastering apprenticeship through East Coast Apprenticeships.

Louis was one of more than 170 local people who found work via the JobShow in 2015.

Once again on October 19, we will be providing the largest one-stop shop of current and upcoming job vacancies on the Sunshine Coast, bringing together hundreds of available jobs from across the region in the one place on the one day.

And the JobShow is not just about looking for a first job.

It offers everything from entry level to professional jobs across a range of industries including retail, hospitality, health, professional services, management, tourism and IT, as well as workshops to provide job-seekers with the knowledge, skills and contacts to maximise their employment chances and improve their job seeking skills.

Registrations are now open for anyone who wants a job, a different job or a better job via the JobShow website

Business registrations are also open for local employers who want to exhibit at the event or list jobs during the campaign.

Our thanks and best wishes go to everyone who has committed to joining the JobShow in 2016 and we look forward to surpassing our record from last year.
