Young job seekers in Eurobodalla have a new place to go for information and advice on finding local employment.
The Job Shop, at 53 Queen Street Moruya, is an initiative of Eurobodalla Council’s award-winning Employment Revolution project, which recently received a further 12 months’ funding from the NSW Government.
The free service helps job seekers find out about job vacancies and training opportunities, get help with planning their career and preparing resumes and job applications.
It also helps local businesses with their staff recruitment and training needs and provides information on incentives for employing young people, including through traineeships and apprenticeships.
Eurobodalla Council’s project coordinator Rhonnie South said the new premises served as a one-stop shop for job seekers and employers.
“The Job Shop is a shared community space for job seekers, employers and small business operators to network and access information and assistance. Personalised service will connect them to the right organisation or service they require,” she said.
“Our ultimate aim is to help tackle youth unemployment and address local skill shortages by providing flexible, innovative programs for our community.”
Council’s Employment Revolution project is funded by the NSW Government’s Department of Education, Skills and Higher Education.
The Job Shop is operating at 53 Queen Street Moruya, Monday to Thursday. To make an appointment contact Rhonnie.South@esc.nsw.gov.au
