Young job seekers in the Eurobodalla have a new place to go for information and advice on finding local employment.
The Job Shop, at 53 Queen Street, Moruya, is an award-winning initiative of Eurobodalla Council’s Employment Revolution project, which recently received a further 12 months’ funding from the NSW Government.
The free service helps job seekers find out about job vacancies and training opportunities, get help planning their career, and preparing resumes and job applications.
The Job Shop also helps local businesses with their staff recruitment and training needs and provides information on incentives for employing young people, including through traineeships and apprenticeships.
Eurobodalla Council project coordinator Rhonnie South said the new premises served as a one-stop shop for job seekers and employers.
“The Job Shop is a shared community space for job seekers, employers, and small business operators to network and access information and assistance,” said Ms South.
“Personalised service will connect them to the right organisation or service they require.
“Our ultimate aim is to help tackle youth unemployment and address local skill shortages by providing flexible, innovative programs for our community.”
The Job Shop is open at 53 Queen Street, Moruya, Monday to Thursday. To make an appointment email Rhonnie South.
