Head to Jobs Drive and care about your career

It’s been called a caring workforce ‘crisis’ and Eurobodalla is not immune. Local health and community care providers are screaming out for staff and what this means for locals is, there’s plenty of jobs.

A Jobs Drive will be held on Wednesday 16 March in Moruya where jobseekers and career-changers can apply on the spot for more than 50 positions across the community services sector.

It’s an initiative of Eurobodalla Council’s Employment Revolution Project, which is seeking to address the shire’s higher-than-average unemployment rate by getting more workers into community care.

Employment Revolution project coordinator Rhonnie South concedes there are many industries needing staff – hospitality and retail especially. However, there’s an important factor that sets the community sector apart – care.

“When you are an essential worker, you’re often the best part of somebody’s day,” she said.

“That person looks forward to you coming, genuinely appreciates the service you provide – and you’re respected and thanked for it. It can be very rewarding to work in care.”

Jobs within community services include admin, human resources, hospitality, care work, gardens and maintenance, and more. Positions are flexible - some don’t even require experience - and it offers fantastic career pathways.

“Plus, as a care worker you’ll never be without work,” says Rhonnie, “you can travel anywhere in the world and you’ll always get employment.

“If you’ve been wondering if this line of work is for you, come down to the Jobs Drive and have a chat”.

“We’ll have stalls from at least 15 different employers who are looking for new team members and if you bring a resume you can apply on the spot. You can enrol in free training courses offered from various training providers on the day and speak to TAFE, South Coast Community College and University of Wollongong staff about care careers.”

The community services jobs drive will be held Wednesday 16 March at the RSL Memorial Hall, 9 Page Street, Moruya, from 10am-12pm. Attending employers include IRT, Anglicare, Fresh Hope Care, Muddy Puddles, Hammondcare, Estia Health, Banksia Villages, Aligned Leisure and Eurobodalla Council.
