Businesses, training partners and recruiters will now have more time to register to be an exhibitor at The JobShow’s jobs, skills and business expo with the event rescheduled to Tuesday, October 16.

Presented by Sunshine Coast Council, The JobShow connects employers to the right staff, candidates to immediate training opportunities and start-ups with critical business services.

Event organiser Kris McCue, from Stones Throw Group, said the new date would allow for more exhibitors to be involved.

“This is great news for businesses, training providers and employers who previously had not been able to attend in September,” Mr McCue said.

“For job seekers and candidates, this means the potential for more connections and opportunities to secure their next role.

“We already have 35 exhibitors confirmed with more coming on board every day.

“Companies like global insurance company Youi Insurance, Stellar Asia Pacific, Suncare Community Services, Sundale, East Coast Apprenticeships, Telstra Business and Defence Force Recruitment, will all have jobs available on the day.

“More than 2000 people attended the last event, engaging with more than 300 employers who were offering up to 900 jobs on the day. In addition, more than 500 people gained new skills and qualifications thanks to connections made at the event.

“The JobShow offers everything from entry level to professional jobs across a range of industries, including retail, hospitality, health, professional services, management, tourism and IT, as well as workshops to provide job-seekers with the knowledge, skills and contacts to maximise their employment chances and improve their job seeking skills.”

Council’s Economic Development and Innovation Portfolio Cr Steve Robinson encouraged candidates, businesses and start-ups to get involved to take advantage of exclusive jobs, skills and business support in the lead-up to the event.

“The JobShow is a real world platform to showcase the opportunities available to the Sunshine Coast community,” Cr Robinson said.

“We’ve also made it simple and affordable for smaller businesses to come on board who might only have one or two vacancies they need filled.

“If you were thinking of being involved in the JobShow, we encourage you to register online.”

The JobShow will be held at the TAFE Mooloolaba campus. For more information visit
