Putting in the work

More than 750 job seekers and 36 local employers attended the 2024 Glenorchy Jobs Fair at KGV for a mammoth day of networking.

The Jobs Fair is an annual event run by the Glenorchy Jobs Hub. The Jobs Hub itself matches people with employers and the training or services they need to get job ready.

Exhibitors offered 630 vacancies on the day and the McDonald’s stall alone listed more than 150 applicants interested in roles.

Glenorchy City Council Mayor Bec Thomas said she was pleased with the turnout.

“The fair was an opportunity for members of the community to network with local employers and have direct access to employment and training opportunities,” she said.

“Even though our unemployment rate is relatively low we know that there are people out of work, people who want to be working and being able to provide for themselves and their families.

“People are also able to access support services which could assist them in their efforts to find work, which is so important.”

The Glenorchy Jobs Fair is supported by Workforce Australia and Local Jobs Hobart and Southern Tasmania.
