New local careers site to connect jobseekers and employers

A new local careers website has been launched to quickly and cost-effectively connect jobseekers and employers on the Sunshine Coast.

Regional Development Manager for Anthony Dow said the site aimed to become the definitive jobs and careers resource for the region thanks to the option of free job advertisements and ease of use for jobseekers., in some ways, works much like other online jobs boards enabling employers and recruitment agencies to advertise their vacancies; and jobseekers to create an online profile with the option to be notified of appropriate jobs as they appear online.

“The difference is it’s 100 per cent about local jobs being easy to access in one central location and it offers free job ads for local business, as well as economical ‘featured job ads’ and employer branding packages. This is unlike many national jobs websites which make it hard for small businesses to get on board.”

RDA Sunshine Coast CEO Russell Mason said the new site was a valuable initiative to support local job seekers and employers’ recruitment activities.

“Having a dedicated careers site for the Sunshine Coast will make it easier for jobseekers to keep up with jobs that are available locally.”

The Sunshine Coast launch, which was attended by Mayor Mark Jamieson and around 100 local business people, follows the great success of the website’s dedicated regional sites for the NSW Central Coast, launched in 2011, and the Newcastle/Hunter region, launched less than 12 months later.
