The Bunbury Jobs Fair, funded by the Australian Government, is being held today and will showcase employment opportunities and connect job seekers with local employers.
Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, said as COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease more local businesses are looking to hire and Jobs Fairs are a great way to find out about local opportunities.
“The Bunbury Jobs Fair will have more than 27 booths featuring local businesses and employment service providers, promoting more than 1,580 job opportunities available in the region, including more than 125 apprenticeships and traineeships on offer,” Minister Cash said.
“This is a great opportunity for local people to attend this free event and speak directly with businesses and employment service providers from their area.”
“We are determined to see people in Bunbury and the wider region get the assistance they need to gain employment.”
Member for Forrest, the Hon Nola Marino MP, said the Bunbury Jobs Fair is a great way for people to connect with businesses currently recruiting.
“Local organisations will be there to explain what qualifications are needed to work in key industries in the region, which include agriculture, health and aged care,” Ms Marino said.
“There will also be free workshops and sessions on offer with practical tips on things like how to write a strong résumé, a local labour market update and tips on how to prepare for an interview.”
The Bunbury Jobs Fair is on today from 9.30am to 5:00pm at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre, 2 Blair Street, Bunbury WA 6230.
