Job seekers from Moruya to Bermagui will be able to speak to potential employers and apply for vacant positions at a Jobs Drive in Narooma on Tuesday 28 May.
The drive will focus on positions currently available in the health and community care sector in the Narooma and Bermagui regions.
The event is run by Eurobodalla Council’s Jobs and Training Project and will include representatives from Estia Health, IRT and Australia Unity, all of which are seeking new staff.
Council’s Jobs and Training Project coordinator Rhonnie South said vacant positions ranged from personal care and individual support to domestic assistance, social support and general services roles.
“There are more than six jobs currently available, some require a Certificate 3 in individual support, however other jobs don’t require any qualifications at all,” she said.
“Job seekers can come along on the day and speak with and apply directly to local employers by filling out an application form, rather than having to apply through a regional head office.
“All they need to bring is a resume and a willingness to pitch themselves to potential employers.”
Ms South said there was heaps of jobs out there.
“We hear people say there’s not a lot of jobs in Eurobodalla, and yet in the aged care industry there’s 1.02 jobs per person in our population – meaning there’s more jobs than there are residents,” she said.
“Care providers are struggling to attract staff and it’s an industry where there is clear career pathways. For example you might start in individual support but use it as a stepping stone to move into things like lifestyle programming, allied health or nursing.”
The Narooma Jobs Drive will be held at Narooma Golf Club’s First Hole Room on Tuesday 28 May, 1pm-3pm. No RSVP is required but job seekers should bring printed copies of their resume.
