A Jobs Fair at Sydney Olympic Park on Tuesday 19 November 2019 will showcase thousands of employment opportunities available in the region.

Funded by the Morrison Government, the Sydney event is one of the biggest Jobs Fairs to date. It will bring together job seekers and numerous local and regional New South Wales businesses with employment opportunities.

Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, said the Jobs Fair will give people looking for work the chance to speak directly with employers and employment service providers.

“The Morrison Government is committed to connecting local jobseekers with local employers and regularly holds Jobs Fairs around Australia. They have been extremely successful with almost 20,000 people attending jobs fairs in the last two years,” Minister Cash said.

“The Government is committed to getting more Australians into work. As Minister for Employment, I am determined to ensure that job seekers in Sydney get the assistance they need to gain sustainable employment.

“The Sydney Jobs Fair is timely given the number of major Australian Government funded infrastructure projects, including the Western Sydney Airport project and Australia’s largest public transport project: Sydney Metro.” 

Member for Reid, Dr Fiona Martin MP, said the Jobs Fair offers locals some great opportunities for people looking for work in the area. 

“It’s a great time to connect with local employers. Sydney is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia and employment is projected to increase by 8.6 per cent in Sydney over the five years to 2023,” Dr Martin said.

“I encourage people to come along, engage in the workshops and find out about the wealth of available local and regional jobs.”

Workshops and information sessions will offer practical tips on résumés and interviews, and job seekers will hear from local employers about the skills they are looking for. There will also be sessions on current job search techniques along with advice on starting a small business.

The Sydney Jobs Fair is a free event at Quaycentre in Sydney Olympic Park on Olympic Boulevard, from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm on Tuesday 19 November 2019.
