A virtual jobs fair showcasing employment opportunities around the Hunter region will be held on Thursday 24 September 2020.

The Hunter Region Virtual Jobs Fair, funded by the Australian Government, will bring together job seekers and local businesses, to promote job opportunities available in the local area.

Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, said the virtual jobs fair provides opportunities for people in the Hunter region who are looking for work to interact online with employers and employment service providers.

“As we see COVID-19 restrictions ease, the Government is committed to connecting job seekers with businesses who are looking to hire,” Minister Cash said.

“The Australian Government has held jobs fairs in many locations around Australia with more than 36,100 people having attended these events over the past two years.

Senator for New South Wales, Hollie Hughes, said the Hunter Region Virtual Jobs Fair is a must for anyone who wants to make the most of the businesses that are currently recruiting and I encourage local job seekers to take advantage of the range of information that will be available online.

“While we can’t meet in person, online presentations will provide job seekers with useful information on how to get job ready and improve their online presence,” Senator Hughes said.

“Our strong manufacturing, mining, innovation and technology sector means that the Hunter region is well placed to lead the nation’s economic recovery.  What better way to support our region than with a Virtual Jobs Fair.”

The Hunter Region Virtual Jobs Fair is a free online event from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm on Thursday 24 September 2020.
