FAIRFAX Regional Media - publishers of the Guardian News - are sponsoring a Jobs Board at this week's Country & Regional Living Expo in Sydney.
The idea is that people keen to relocate to regional areas such as the Nambucca Valley will be able to check the board to see what employment opportunities are available.
Nambucca Shire Council has also travelled to the expo at
Rosehill Gardens to promote the many benefits of a seahange to our Valley.
Last year, the Jobs Board contained at least 1000 work opportunities in regional NSW.
Expo CEO Peter Bailey has welcomed the support from Fairfax Media. “With jobs.com.au we see our new association as enhancing the previously static jobs board,” Mr Bailey said.
"We will have more than 65 communities from regional NSW at Rosehill showcasing to Sydneysiders what they can offer people interested in moving to areas outside of Sydney," Mr Bailey said.
Fairfax's Natasha Lloyd Jones said: “This sponsorship will enable jobs to be directly loaded onto the jobs.com.au for the expo, allowing potential job seekers to access a vast array of country and regional NSW jobs online."
“Fairfax Regional Media clients already having their jobs displayed in the local paper and loaded on jobs.com.au will also receive the additional benefit of being promoted with additional cover at the expo on the interactive jobs board.”
With so many areas experiencing skill shortages, this is an opportunity to get a job advertised, marketed and promoted in Sydney.
"With so many families and individuals being squeezed in Sydney we are about to show them a real alternative," Ms Lloyd Jones said.
Fairfax Regional Media will also offer visitors a chance to search for housing on Domain.com.au at expo, showcasing prime real estate within regional NSW.
A bank of computers will be at the Expo to allow visitors to search for real estate and jobs in regional communities.
People attending the Expo at Sydney’s Rosehill Racecourse will be able to 'walk through' NSW in a day and see what it has to offer. Find out more at crlexpo.com.au.
