“As we continue to face the challenges of COVID-19, it’s important to support Australians to find employment and access training opportunities,” Minister Cash said.
“Funded by the Australian Government, jobs fairs connect local employers with local job seekers,” Minister Cash said.
Federal Member for Wright, Scott Buchholz said the fair was a COVIDSafe way of connecting job seekers with businesses that had job vacancies.
