New job vacancies in Brisbane


A new round of job vacancies is being advertised in Brisbane during Australia’s unprecedented COVID-19 response.

Minister for Employment and Small Business Shannon Fentiman said online employment portal SEEK had advised of more than 1600 new job vacancies in Brisbane.

“We know this is a tough time for Brisbane with the jobs of many Queenslanders evaporating virtually overnight,” Ms Fentiman said.

“It’s good news to see that according to the SEEK online jobs portal there are up to 1685 jobs in Brisbane waiting to be filled right now.”

New jobs across several sectors advertised by SEEK include:

  • Businesses and government departments scaling up call centres in response to a rapid increase in customer and social needs, creating extra jobs for call centre operators, customer care staff, data entry and call centre managers
  • Aged care with roles for drivers, cooks and nurses and general medical, as well as pharmacists,
  • Software development and cyber security as businesses adjust to remote working practices
  • Retail essential services in shelf stacking, supply chain managers, warehousing supervisors and logistics truck drivers
  • Food delivery drivers for cafe and restaurant takeaways
  • Nannies and tutors for parents and carers working from home who need support with care and education

“These 1685 job vacancies offer hope as we work together through a challenging time for our community,” Ms Fentiman said.

“We want to assist businesses as much as possible during this crisis to stay open and keep staff employed.

“That’s why the Palaszczuk Government has introduced $4 billion in COVID-19 assistance measures.

“This assistance includes a $200 credit for 2.1 million Queensland households to help with water and electricity costs.

“And, $2.5 billion in worker and industry support, such as payroll tax relief, assistance for businesses renting government-owned buildings, plus help to get unemployed Queenslanders into jobs in sectors with a shortage of workers.

“We’re working creatively and collaboratively with industry to keep as many people in Brisbane in work as we can.

“The Palaszczuk Government’s assistance and the programs offered by the Federal Government will help Brisbane bounce back stronger once COVID-19 has been defeated.

“It’s an investment in our future.”
