Job seekers can talk directly with employers looking for staff and apply for positions on the spot at a Jobs Drive in Moruya on Thursday 19 November.
An initiative of Eurobodalla Council’s Employment Revolution project, the Jobs Drive will bring together 11 local employers from the health and community services sector who collectively have more than 50 job vacancies in the areas of childcare, cleaning, kitchen and food service, working with older people, supporting people with disability, home care, social work, training and assessment and nursing.
Council’s employment projects officer Amy Kovacs said the event would help demystify and speed up the job application process for job seekers.
“It can be quite intimidating to apply for job in the health sector but the Jobs Drive will help break down barriers for people who might think it’s too difficult, or that they’re not qualified,” she said.
“If you need a job, come along – even if you don’t think you’re qualified. You’ll get to meet employers face-to-face and hand them your resume on the day, giving you the opportunity to make a good impression and avoiding what is sometimes a lengthy application process.”
Ms Kovacs said the Jobs Drive benefitted local employers, too.
“The sector ordinarily always looking for staff is in fact now looking for even more staff due to COVID,” she said.
“Anyone who is looking for any type of position - part time, casual and fulltime, entry level or specialised, should come along - don’t be afraid if you don’t have a qualification.”
The Jobs Drive will be held at the Moruya Memorial RSL Hall, 9 Page Street, Moruya, on Thursday 19 November from 10am to 12pm.
