A virtual jobs fair running today is designed to showcase employment opportunities around Perth and regional WA.

Employment Minister Michaelia Cash said as COVID restrictions lift, more local businesses will look to hire staff.

“We are rolling out a series of jobs fairs around Australia to keep people connected to job opportunities in their local area,” she said.

“Our government is committed to getting Australians back into jobs and I am determined to see job seekers get the help they need to gain sustainable employment.”

Matt O’Sullivan, Senator for Western Australia, said the fair would help people connect with businesses that were recruiting and get advice on becoming job ready.

“Participating in this event will be the critical first step for many of these jobseekers in gaining employment or finding the right training to prepare for their career of choice,” he said.

The Perth Virtual Jobs Fair is a free online event from 9.30am to 1.30pm today, Tuesday 14 July.
